Patient Comments: Probiotics - Experience

Please describe your experience with probiotics.

Comment from: Ruthy, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: May 21

I started taking probiotics after taking antibiotics several months ago and my digestive health is much better than it ever was. I have arthritis in my thumbs and since I started taking them the swelling and pain has subsided. I will continue to take them for that reason alone.
