    Anyone who takes these, how many do you take and how many times a day? With or without food?

    Also, Can you take this with other meds or by itself?

    thanks so much!!!!

    This is an excerpt from Dr. Cheney' treatment protocol:

    "polymicrobial probiotic without fructo-oligo-saccharides. You don't want to use a probiotic with FOS, because FOS is simply fertilizer for the bad bacteria and makes them grow faster. [Probiotics are sources of healthful microflora. A good product will include acidophilus, bifidum, rhamnoses, and possibly others."

    I use Primal Defense and take 2 pills in the morning and/or at night on an empty stomach. I usually forget to take them at night. And an acidophilus pearl during the day that I can take with food because it's specially coated. You can take them with medication.

    happy xmas!
