  • IC friendly acidophilus?

    Hi friends!

    I'm seeking an acidophilus that my IC friends have found to be helpful and at the same time won't cause a flare. Any info would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Diane

    I like Primadophilus Optima by Nature's Way.35 BILLION CFU It is enteric-coated so it is released in the intestins (where it is needed) as opposed to the stomach (where the stomach acid may kill teh friendly bacteria). It has only 2 mg of Vitamin C , other probiotics I've tried have more Vit C. Treelac is a very goodone but also has more Vit C so I just take that one 1-2 times a week. ( I used to take it twice a day for weeks and it bodered my bladder)

    IC dx 3/2006
    V V dx 12/2006
    Other conditions: IBS, allergies, dry eyes.


    Current IC medications:
    Elavil (since 12/06) 10 mg;
    Cysta Q (since 5/07)
    Rephresh acid jel every 3 days
    D-mannose, fish oil, Calcium Citrate, Multivitamins & garlic pills (sometimes)
    Probiotics Femdophilus or other brands
    Gy-Na-Tren for yeast infections (started using it as needed since 2010)
    Other Rx:Omeprazole 20mg; benadryl as needed, Restasis


    Past Meds and why I stopped them:
    Elmiron: March to September 2006: headaches
    Lyrica:2 weeks in 2006: headaches
    Cystoprotek: from Jan to April 2007: nausea

    Femcon Fe (2/07 to 10/07):caused spotting/bleeding
    BCP:Loestrin (since Ocotber 2007) to stop spotting for 2 months. V V worse. Stopped the pill in Nov 07.

        The on by "Nature's Way" I buy at whole foods. There are several good ones there and you can just check the ingredients and try. If it doesn't work you can return it.
        ThreeLac I buy online, but this may cause you a flare if you are sensitive to Vitamin C.
