Vsl#3 - How much can you take?

I do the capsules daily I don't like the powder. How many do you all take? 2? 4? 8? you can take anywhere from 2-8 daily. I typically do 2 in the am and then 1-2 later in the evening.. but not sure if that is too many/too little

Do you already see results, guys? I would like to try it soon, fortunately I have my next gastroenterologist appointment soon, so I can ask him about VSL.

My doctor gives me free samples because they are expensive.

It took DS a month to see results
Prescription strength is vsl#3 double strength packets (900 billion each packet )
Our Gi had DS take two packets a day for a month to build things up then 1 packet a day for maintenance.

It will cause cramping bloating and abdominal discomfort for the first month so be prepared

I've been on it for 1 1/2 months, 2 capsules daily. I started increasing it to 3-4.. not consisitent how many, depends on how I'm feeling.

quite honestly, this flare is so uncontrolled, I don't know what to do anymore!
