Been taking culturelle for almost a month now, when i finish i'm thinking about switching to align, good idea to switch probiotics? For variety?

Yes...: Culturelle and align, though both probiotics, have different properties. Culturelle contains exclusively lactobacillus species of bacteria. Align has a variety of bacteria with the main component bifidobacterium which has been proven in studies to be a more hardy probiotic species. Go ahead and make the switch. Good luck! ...Read more

Can you take culturelle probiotic and rephresh pro b together?

Sure: Probiotics are just collections of bacteria and the various bacteria do not interact with each other. You can take as many different types as you wish with no negative effects. But there is no evidence that a single probiotic, let alone several at once, cure any specific GI problems. As they are harmless, the only negative effect of taking them is to your pocketbook. ...Read more

No worries, but...: There are many Lactobacillus types, and various studies have tried amounts of 1-10 billion CFUs (colony forming units) in babies, without seeing any bad side effects. That being said, there is seldom much research that one can find on one particular brand or strain of Lactobacillus use in babies... so no worries, but "user beware". ...Read more

Probiotic align or culturelle? Difference, pros, cons? For ibs. Thanks a lot.

What sxs to fix?: Your choice of probiotics may depend on what symptoms you have, ; whether you are on antibiotics. Also, different probiotics work in different ways. Lactobacillus and acidophilus grow rapidly to crowd out "bad" bacteria, bifidobacter helps reduce "gas", and sacchromyces boulardes retards the growth of clostridum difficile and has the added advantage of being relatively antibiotic resistant. ...Read more

Cdiff 7 yrs ago. Sinus infection 3 weeks ago. Seftin: 10 days, culturelle probiotics immediately. So far fine10 days after seftin. When stop probiotics?

Cdiff 7 yrs ago. Sinus infection 3 weeks ago. Seftin: 10 days, culturelle probiotics immediately. So far fine10 days after seftin. When stop probiotics?

Now: Ceftin is an antibiotic that does not last in the bloodstream for many days like a commonly used antibiotic called zpak or zithromax. If it has been 10 days after stopping Ceftin it would be safe to assume that the antibiotic is out of your system and that you can stop the probiotic. ...Read more
