I started a probiotic drink 3 days ago I know have a really bad stomach ache and diarrhoea. Do you think it could be the drink. Any suggestions if I should keep taking it

    I've always taken it in pill form 1 a day (1 billion active cultures), never had a problem in fact it finally cleared up my diarrhea and loose bowels.

    There have been tests done by  universities in London that probiotics in pill form never survive the stomach acid so they dont do anything ,they say its a placebo affect.Sorry.

      That's OK, I guess  I'm proof they work sometimes. I had bad issues after having complications from my gall bladder taken out in 2001 and they did help me get back on track and now this time also.

    I eat yogurt instead because the probotic pills make me nauseated , dirreah and stomach issues.
