What are the side effects for pedia lax probiotics chewable tablets cause she took two instead of one on accident will it hurt her?
I was told by a physicharist that probiotics may help with side effects of Prozac (fluoxetine) do u agree?
No: Probiotics have many beneficial, if mild, effects on health. That they assist with Prozac (fluoxetine) side effects comes from the idea that they can reduce anxiety by supporting increased GABA in the gut, and therefore in the brain. (gaba in the brain reduces the excitatory effects of glutamate) but GABA does not cross the blood brain barrier. So more in the gut has no effect in the brain. ...Read more
It's Controversial.: Multiple studies have been done to answer this question, and some have shown a decrease in C. difficile, while others have shown no benefit. Because the risk of side effects of probiotics is generally low (but not zero) I usually recommend to take them if you have had a previous episode of C. difficile or if you have other risk factors for it. Otherwise, there is likely not to be much benefit. ...Read more

Are probiotics okay to give an 18 mo old? Suffering trying to give augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) suspension, forcing it with hershey syrup but he's not eating
Depends: Most patients do not experience side effects. For those that do, increasing the dose can lead to fear and reluctance. I always counsel patients, about to increase their medication, to recall any side effects when they started the med. They should expect the same side effects but to a lesser degree and shorter time. This occurs because the relative change in dose is smaller with each increase. ...Read more

Noticeable change: The intention behind the change is important to know and so I can only surmise what it was although both good and bad things may happen as with most changes. The Provigil is more subtle in both therapeutic effects and side effects. The Provigil may cause less jitteriness and anxiety and will not have appetite suppression.
