I have been reading that prebiotics help probiotics in controlling ibs symptoms. Some of these supplements can be costly and I am hoping to get information from other members if they use both prebiotics & probiotics. Are prebiotics really effective ? Do you find probiotics effective? Any side effects from them ? What supplements work best for you if you take these ? So many to chose from !
I'm looking recommendations on a good probiotic to take for IBS.
I used to use VSL#3 Probiotic but they have since stop making it! My doctor wants me on something with so many billion bacteria in it. What does everyone take that your doctor has recommended?
Have been to numerous health professionals and no one has help. Suggestions?
My GI doctor wants me to take probiotics. For the past 6 or 7 months every time I eat Activia, or take a probiotic I GET a vaginal yeast infection. After I stop the probiotics it resolves. Anyone else have this issue? I can't find anything on Dr. Google. GI doctor said this is not possible.

Hello. I have ibs-d and aside from bentyl I don't really take anything aside from occasional Imodium. My doctor recommended probiotics and I was wondering if anyone had had any relief with them. If so, what kind? Thanks!
