Trouble With Culturelle Probiotic

Recommended Posts

I've always been on a probiotic and my body seems to get used to them after a while. I switch brands regularly. After being on philip's colon health for a while, I switched to culturelle. I've been having diarrhea with it, though it is marketed as helping with it. I don't usually get diarrhea unless I've eaten (unintentionally) a good bit of gluten, which I don't believe I have because I'm not getting all of my usual symptoms. Anyone had trouble with culturelle? Which brands are better? Acidophilus made me feel horrible and the pearls never worked for me. As always, I'm grateful for anyone's time and advice! You people are awesome : )

I never had trouble with culturelle, but maybe you just have an issue with that brand for some reason.

 

I only used that when I had D in the beginning because yes, lactobacillus GG is targeted for D.

 

Ever try Florajen 3?

I've never heard of it. I'll try anything that works!

I tried culturelle once, and it didn't seem to do anything whatsoever. That's not to say you won't have any reaction to it though. My sensitivities seem to only become heightened and expanded over time. It does get frustrating sometimes.

i use culturelle because it is soy free.  you have to use it for about 2 weeks before everything 'settles down' - when i first started taking it, my guts sounded like a war zone, lolz :D  at first, i thought i was reacting to it, then i read the box <wah waaaaaaaaah...   ^_^

Try  different  brands  of probiotics  & it is great  you know  to switch  them...  Lots  to choose  from  ... Dr Ohirra's ,  align,  floragen3, &  many many more.. Some  work  for    many  &  do  nothing  for  others....You  have  to  find  one  that  works for your  body....

Also  consider  digestive  enzymes  as  well....they  are  before meals  & help break  down  sugars, carbs  proteins.....

I started Culturelle 9 days ago to rotate the probiotics I'm taking and I'm not sure it's related but I've been having nausea and headaches and I'm not sure why. Maybe they don't agree with me. I'm going to stop them to see if it helps and go back on the multi strain I was taking, I didn't have any problem with those. If Culturelle is targeted for D, that could be a problem for me, I have C, and it's been worse lately.

 

This site is such a jewel, thanks again to those who keep it up and running. I don't know what I would have done without it during this period of trial and error. Having a place to learn and exchange experiences is priceless. We are all very lucky to have it :)

I, too, have C. The symptoms did lessen for me, though not gone completely. I'd say give it more time. I agree about this site, I'd be a total wreck going through this celiac journey alone!

    Dear god yes lol, I have a corn allergy and the starch is hit miss if it triggers a reaction, but they could also be from rice, or tapioca....seriously they need to go the route of many shampoos/body washes that list the chemical/ingredient...
    since they just say "food starch" they could have made it from a cows arse for all i know. they need to just say what it comes from every time lol
    Here is the interpretation chart he sent me and yes I have 2 kids in which their pediatrician said they didn’t need to be tested unless they show symptoms which goes against everything I have read about symptoms being silent etc.... Is i...
