Probiotics work on the gut don't they? For the stomach, i have bio live yoghurts and yoghurt drinks like actimel. Live yoghurts are really good and i put seeds on top to eat. Sometimes nuts and honey too.

I am careful with the brand i buy. I take a good multivitamin and fish oils for when i am not eating well.

I take a NutriPreme Probiotic, 150 billion CFUS/g, Acidophilus, Lactobacillus.

I take one after dinner along with a Digestive Enzyme and a 1000mg Omega 3.

I started taking them because I was using a herbal supplement to help with my psychosis and on the bottle it said if I was going to take them for longer than a month then it recommended I take a Probiotic and Digestive Enzyme as well. I suppose I just carried on when I got proper anti-psychotics for my condition.

The Omega 3 I added because I heard it was good for psychosis too.

I also take Licorice Root, I have 2 capsules in the morning along with my Sertraline and Aripiprazole, it's supposed to be a digestive aid.

So my gut health should be absolutely tip top.

I wouldn't know anything about that sorry, I have my daily 'routine' but no more than once a day.

Probably best to consult your GP about using supplements but I wouldn't expect much from them. I took 3 bottles of pills to the doctors once to ask for advice and the best she could do was shrug her shoulders lol.

The 3 supplements I showed her were the Probiotic, the Digestive Enzyme and another herbal supplement called Graviola, I decided to take them any way because of my own research into them.

GP's won't 'touch' alternative medicine with a barge pole, as they say.
Mine hold their hands up as if to say 'i'm not going there' 'no comment'

You have to be extremely careful even when not taking prescription medication

I think the best thing you can do is eat a healthy diet and ditch the alternative stuff unless you really know what you are doing, as NWiddi does.

It seems to be a minefield.

You can try cutting back on the dose. I take one in the morning for bladder health and immune system.

Yea alot actually like you know those shaker bottles 4 a day.
You could try 1 less and see if that is better.

I tried 2 litres a day but could only manage 1 litre. We were told 8 small glasses per day of water. I don't count anymore.
