I use culturelle.

A gastro dr that I used to see reccomended it to me.

You can buy it from the vitamin shoppe or www.vitaminshoppe.com

I have found them to have the lowest price.

The directions on the box say to take 1 pill twice daily if you are on antibotics.

That is how much I take and it works.

It is better is you refrigerate it after you buy it.

Best wishes [Smile]

theralac by far has been the best for me---oh I gotta go take some now!

I only have to take one pill a day!!! I rarely crave sweets and have no vag yeast.

Also eat some plain organic yogurt every day. this helps with probiotics all the way thru your from your mouth into tummy.

doXy is a dooosie on the tummy!

I use Theralac but have had incredible success stopping an acute herx in its tracks with Bio-K plus (well, that and charcoal). I just wish the Bio-K wasn't so expensive - it runs me about $4.50 a pop at Whole Foods, but man does that stuff work.

Yes, Doxy is a doosy, I can attest to that, as is Tetracycyline. And i was taking Acidophilis when on them.

It works good on herbal protocol, no problems to speak of.

I didn't have yeast problems, but did have stomach pain and nausea on those abx.

Dr. B. doesn't recommend the Doxy these days. I was reading his Sept 2005 article the other night. He says many others are easier on the stomach. HOwever the others have other drawbacks.

Sigh!

I had wanted to do Amoxicillin, but for now am just going to stick with the herbs and see how I progress in the next couple of months.

I ran out of Acidiphilis a couple of days ago, got to order some more along with some other things. But I am taking the Sarsaparilla, Red Root and Milk Thistle yet, so that should help. As long as I stay of the abx, that is.

Essential Formulas is my personal favorite. It contains probiotics AND nutrients to feed the "good guys". Expensive though.

Or...chose another that has to be refigerated. Likely more "effective".

VERY important that you take probiotics one hour before a meal with a full glass of water.

The water dilutes the very acidic stomach acids which would "do in" the good guys.

The "timing" allows them to reach their destination where they can set up "housekeeping".

Acids...any and all of them...damage/knock off the good guys.

Those who do NOT have yeast problems MIGHT be hypoglycemic to begin with.
