Doubt OD : Probiotics are basically healthy bacteria in a form given to help a kid have a gut with the good germs instead of others. The kid can certainly have a intolerance or allergic reaction to any of the many other fillers in the preparation. I would call it an intolerance rather than an OD but would never offer use it again. You may want to report the reaction to the drug company & your doc.
