Can you take too much probiotic? How much is too much or is there such a thing? I'm taking one billion icu's but I noticed that PB8 has alot more than that.

Jujulang, you should be taking billions - plural. PB8 is a good product. I've used it for years with no problem. The 'high power' variety (VSL#3, for instance) has many, many billion more than PB8........so no, it's not too much of a good thing.

Just got my bottle today and will start on those soon as I finish the ones I have. On a slightly different note, I'm definitely menopausal, FSH is very high.......... I from now on am going to blame all this on menopause. Seems that's what the dr's do......" Oh, you have motility issues, hot flashes, dizziness, constipation, yellow stool, sluggish gallbladder, etc, this can all be related to menopause. Here's a sleeping pill to get you through the night sweats, good luck and let's hope it doesn't last long! " Real helpful stuff............
