Probiotics

Postby Jess123 » Thu Feb 08, 2018 7:58 pm

I have been recovering from an FMT for 4 weeks now. I began taking florastor (Saccharomyces boulardii) but am having IBS symptoms and have read that Align (bifidobacterium infantis) really helps with symptom relief. Has anyone else taken multiple probiotics at the same time or any advice? I was thinking of taking one in the morning and one at night. Thanks for any help!

Hi,
Probiotic after Fmt is based on your Dr advice. If you have the ok most people used Vsl#3. Florastol. Ask your DR if you can have enteragam , this product help me with IBS symtoms after Fmt.
It will get better , stay positive.

Most doctors do not recommend probiotics after FMT because they have a theory that the pill bacteria can compete with the natural bacteria received from FMT. However , they recommend a fiber supplement to help feed your new starter culture and help them multiply.

Agree with Georgina, cut the probiotics and add fiber gradually. Check with your doc first.
