I was just thinking to myself; as I'm currently experiencing a little bit of a rocky gut. Can anyone tell me if this would make sense? I've been on Cipro & Flagyl for some time now (with good results) the past few days things have gotten slightly rocky, waking up most mornings at 4-5am having to use the washroom once (usually sleep through the night) & throughout the day grumbling and gas along with slight pressure in my rear. I've been eating sour key candies, maybe two a day. If it's true that sugar forms bad bacteria in the gut is it possible this is leading to my experiences now? On top of the antibiotics killing the rest of the beneficial flora. I've picked up Bio-k Plus (travel protection - without realization) I want to start trying out different probiotics. These tablets however have a timed release (once it gets to the small intestine) Are these safe for us J-pouchers? Should I open the tablet and just mix the powder into a drink? I've had VSL3 but my pharmacy said the 10 sachet boxes are discontinued and the 30 sachet box is around $100, so I'm looking into other pro-bios.
Thanks in advance.
