    I just started taking digestive enzymes yesterday and also pro-biotics and lipoic acid. I checked with my pharmacist first and got the ok. I have IBS along with cfs/fm and have had since I was a samll child although is has intensified in the last few years to symptoms everyday. Since yesterday, I've had a lot of cramping and gas, much more than usual. Is this a just getting used to them and will go away thing?

    Hi Lendi,

    Can't say for sure, but sounds like you may have introduced a little too much, a little too fast.

    I would start with only ONE of these products, use for several days, or until any reactive symptoms subside, then introduce the others one at a time. You MAY even find that you don't really need all of these.

    One thing you might want to try, and generally, with less severe reactions, would be adding (fresh)ground flax seed to your daily intake. Start with a couple of teaspoons and build up to 2 tablespoons daily. This regimen has proven itself many times over with IBS.

    Good luck,
    Copper
