Has anyone had success using probiotics and prebiotics for IBS? There is a new product out that safely combines both in one dose and contributes 16 billion friendly bacteria to the intestinal tract. I am curious as I was recently diagnosed with IBS and am trying to figure out ways to deal with it . In my research I have seen some interesting things about probiotics and prebiotics and wondered if anyone had a success story they might share?

They work for some peopleNo good way to predict who.Some IBSers who are very gas sensitive have problems with prebiotics. They are just bacteria food and they don't know they aren't supposed to feed the non-probiotic bacteria and the non-probiotic bacteria make gas when they digest carbs (probioitcs, by definition do not, they stop before breaking them all the way down to gas)
