I was wondering if anyone has used the probiotic VSL#3? If so, what was your experience with it? Is is a commonly recommended product?

Thanks so much for the reply! From what i have read, it looks like you should start slow on the dose. We are open to any other advice on this.....

My son uses it, it was recommended by gastro, as it is one that can pass through the digestive system into the gut without all "the good stuff" burning up before it gets there (as another probiotic may do). We use as part of treatment, no adverse effects, but not sure if helps anything. I figure it certainly cannot hurt (except the checkbook, maybe:) It's quite expensive, but Costco is pretty competitive, price wise.
