Re: Are probiotics meant to be taken forever?

I've taken CVS's store brand probiotics on and off for a couple of years.  I think they help keep me regular and reduce bloating.  It is the only OTC or for that matter drug I take.  I do have a problem with people like Colleen on HSN who seem to take multiple OTC drugs.  Unless the person has a specific problem, I think doing that can be dangerous.

 

 


Colleen takes a lot of Andrew Lessman’s vitamins, which is different than OTC drugs, and much healthier for her, as well.

My GI doctor put me on probiotics for Irritable Bowel Syndrome.  I think they have helped me.

I just take probiotics when I take antibiotics.  Some of my docs recommend them, some don't mention them.
