I have recently had great experience with the refrigerated VSL 3 packets. These have significantly reduced bloating/gas and helped with stool consistency.Additionally, Florastor helped me out a lot in the beginning.Many other probiotics have made my symptoms worse, such as align and accuflora. So for those of you who have not had a good experience with probiotics, my experience is that some are much more helpful than others. My background is post-infectious IBS-D. I am not completely cured, but have been able to manage my symptoms much better lately.
