I've been wanting to use one for a while. I wasn't sure if any of the probiotic yogurts were gluten free so I tried one in pill form. Unfortunately, it gave me stomache aches! NOT cool! Has this happened to anyone else? Do you use one of the yogurts? I can tolerate yogurt, so that would be a better choice for me.
Thanks!!

I just saw this on the GAPS webpage FAQ the other day. Maybe it will help. This is from http://gapsdiet.com/FAQs.html

"Even the smallest amount of any probiotic food or supplement causes me severe bloating, fatigue and pain. How do I do the diet if I cant take probiotics? Are there any conditions where probiotic are not recommended?"

People suffering from ME, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and some other debilitating conditions often have difficulties introducing probiotics. The reason for that is the die-off effect: it is so severe in this group of patients that they find it very difficult to cope with. Just start from a tiny amount and go up very slowly. I have patients who start from 1/18th of a capsule of the Bio-Kult (or as much powder as would fit on the end of a sharp knife), and it takes them months to get up to one capsule per day. The same with fermented foods, start from a tiny amount per 5-7 days; as your body gets used to that amount, start taking it a bit more frequently. When you can take that tiny amount every day, start increasing the dose. Proceed in this very slow manner. It is important for you to introduce probiotics in the form of food or supplement. You just have to go slowly.

I second Skyark's advice to start slowly, possibly with probiotic powder instead of a whole capsule.

Probiotics are beneficial and not harmful. :)

I think your reaction is one of "die off" in which case, you may really need the probiotics to balance your gut flora.

Drink a lot of water to hydrate and flush.

Celiac guts need probiotics for many reasons.

It took me almost a year to get to a full capsule. I have lots of experience with die off. Its not a bad thing, it telling you it working but you don't feel so good. Makes for a tough day. My doctor said in order for the drug to help you, you must be able to tolerate it and that may take time and patience. So go slow, very slow, your body will tell you if you are going too fast. You can do it!!

I just tried La Yogurt Probiotic which is gluten free. Had four of them in the past week. Today had an issue in the bathroom. It takes me along time to digest and since going gluten free I have issues not visiting the bathroom enough, so I thought the yogurt would help, now I am not sure after today with a stomach ache and a run to the bathroom;
