Side Effects Of Acidophilus

Have you suffered the side effects of acidophilus? A little more gas than you would like? Hmmm?

Like to share you experience here and how you handled it?

The worst that usually happens when a person starts to take Lactobacillus acidophilus is a little bloating or flatulence and it does wear off as your body becomes accustomed to those extra bacteria.

Remember, most people are not affected at all.

Gas Like You Wouldn't Believe!
by: Anonymous

I had gas like you wouldn't believe for the first 4-5 days. It was terrible. My wife didn't want to sleep with me. She claimed I didn't nothing but break wind all night.

I've been taking the Theralac probiotics which have acidophilus in them. Like I said, first few days were embarrassing to say the least but this settled down. Probably took about a week but now my digestive system is feeling better than it has in years.

I used to get acid reflux and that's why I started the capsules. For awhile, I thought I had made things worse but now I can see that was just a bad patch I had to go through as the old bacteria died and the new ones took over.

Me Too!
by: Gina

Exactly the same result for me. Bad gas for 4-5 days. Had to keep excusing myself from the office - I work in a large shared office - so that I could let the wind out in private. Most embarrassing.

Much better now. It does settle down once your body gets used to it. I'm taking the Acidophilus Pearls made by Enzymatic.

Very helpful for yeast - haven't had a recurrence since I started taking them.

Worth persevering through the flatulence problem.

No Bad Effect
by: Anonymous

All I can say is that some of you dudes must be wimps because I take acidophilus every day and never had gas or anything else.

Mind you it didn't make me feel any better either.

Acidophilus side effect

OMG - round belly is not the word, it's huge by end of day and the loudest smelliest wind all day and all night. It's been 8 days since I've been taking acidophilus, should I stop?

Taking one a day and I am a little bloated but I didn't have the acid I used to have. I am going to ask my doc to give me a test to check my bacteria.

War horse farts
by: Anonymous

Since I started taking acidophilus pills the gas has been worse than Hurricane Katrina! I have been on it 5 days but I can't get rid of my gas. My daughter moved out of the house until it lets up and her dog hides under the bed each time I burst. I have high hopes of it helping my stomach problems.

Dull stomach pain and cramping
by: Anonymous

I have only started the acidophilus 6 days ago and I have cramping and stomach pain but not unbearable pain. I may be feeling gassy but I've always had problems passing gas. I'm going to stick with it and see what happens I guess

Flu like symptoms
by: Anonymous

I started taking the acidophilus and by the next day I started feel very ill, flu like symptoms. Anyone else have these symptoms and how long will they last?

Answered by Dawn: That is the Herx reaction and is a not uncommon response if you are low on probiotics and start taking them. Ease off on the dose slightly and wait it out. These flu like symptoms will soon go - and then you are going to feel so much better..

Crampage
by: Anonymous

This is my third day taking Jarro-Dophilus EPS 5 billion organisms. I am experiencing minor cramping and gas, but I am already a gassy person. It is a minor pain in my lower abdominal area, but if it helps its worth it! The capsules are enteric-coated and I take one capsule when I wake on an empty stomach. I also take another on an empty stomach before dinner. Is this the best dosage to start off on? I also take super digestive enzymes after I eat which I am supposing is okay?! Not really sure about this supplement stuff but hoping it helps with my digestion.

Answered by Dawn: if you're still getting a bit of cramping, I'd cut it down to 1 capsule a day until the cramping goes and then step it up again.

Hopefully it has already eased. It usually doesn't last for long.

Worried
by: Anonymous

I have noticed that my blood pressure goes up when I take this pill. And when I stop taking it, it goes down. Anyone else has this problem?

Dawn answered: This seems to be something individual to you and if you are concerned you should see your doctor.

This medical study http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21296446 showed no affect on blood pressure after eating yogurt containing acidophilus.

This earlier study also found no effect on blood pressure. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10745279

We are all individuals and can react differently to substances. I've never heard of this effect before and suggest you see your doctor just to check blood pressure.

Quitting Jarro-Dophilus
by: Anonymous

For a period of about a month I took one to two of the Jarrow EPS capsules, which contain L. acidophilus, L. casei, and L. reuteri, among some other strains. For about a week and a half I have stopped taking them (I ran out) without having tapered the dosage or anything like that. Perhaps coincidentally, I have had some serious flatulence going on that did not occur even when I started taking the Jarro-Dophilus.

Could this be an imbalance thing, where suddenly the probiotic bacteria are lower in number and this causes the horrible gas? I'm still eating yogurt and feta cheese every day... Any estimates on the duration of this gassy period were I to never take Jarro-Dophilus again?

Dawn answered: Probably an imbalance that will sort itself out in time. But that Jarro Dophilus would have been doing you nothing but good. Why stop!!

Side effects of acidolphilus?
by: Shannon

I just started acidophilus about 4 days ago. Noticed a little bloating, one night had terrible gas but not a lot since then (except the bloating). Since beginning acidophilus I have suffered with more headaches (migraines) and feelings of depression, fatigue, and not sleeping well at night mixed with strange dreams. Let's just say I am not myself! Can this be a detox reaction I'm having? I am taking a very SMALL dose of acidophilus with no other probiotic added. I deal with many food intolerances and leaky gut.

Dawn answered: Definitely sounds like a detox reaction. You're doing the right thing by just taking a small amount while your body adjusts.

Cramps

Unbelievable cramping pains, feel like I need to pass wind but can't. Am sitting on the toilet every 30 mins praying for a fart. This is unbearable.

Side Effects Of Probiotic Acidophilus With Pectin
by: Anonymous

Because I suffer a lot with indigestion I have decided to to try and get my body back on track so I started taking probiotic acidophilus with pectin (each capsule contains 3 Billion active cultures).

I take just one tablet a day instead of two, but now I find the indigestion has got worse, my stomach is bloated almost all the time. The worst thing I done the other day was eat baked beans OMG the wind was so bad I thought I was going to take off!

Can you please tell me if I take just one capsule every second day until my body gets use to it would this be okay (as I cannot reduce the capsule dose any other way) would this low dose still have a positive effect?? All being well I hope to increase the dose as I go along. I am desperate to get my body back on track.

Look forward to your comments.

Dawn answered: The pectin is providing a food source for the good bacteria, particularly the Bifidobacterium. This is likely part of the cause of the wind.

I'd stop the pectin until you have it sorted.

Way too much gas
by: Popthebubble

I have been taking a capsule since the first of April and can't get rid of the gas. My stomach just turns and turns throughout the day. Or at least until I can get to my car. Since it's a capsule then how can I cut down on taking them? I know my co-worker is tired of hearing my stomach...but at least he doesn't have to hear me fart.

Dawn answered: Try changing brands so that you can get one with a lower dose until this eases.

ON A LEARNING CURVE
by: scotslassie

I started the acidophilus plus capsules 4 days ago. I had a very similar experience to Shannon but did not realize it was the capsules as I have taken them before with no side effects. I felt very unwell and stopped them on the third day and it took at least 24hours to get rid of bloating. I started them again today and eureka the same symptoms and so landed on this site to have a nosey. Thank you for sharing the side effects I am now trying to quarter a capsule and hoping things will improve.

probiotic update
by: Shannon

I am still taking a small dose of acidophilus and believe it is working fine for me. The side effects are gone...I am even thinking those were related to something else completely. I am perimenopausal so my hormones are all over the map and I also have food intolerances so who knows. I've been on the probiotic for a month or more and doing fine on it. I also add one big tablespoon of aloe vera gel at bedtime and that seems to be helping my stomach as well. My probiotic is a very small dose (only 100 million). If I take a billion or more I tend to feel sick. So I am starting small and working my way up to handling more. I also would recommend Kombucha (I work in a health food store and we sell it like crazy). I have experimented with small 1/4 cup amounts of it as well.

Low tide
by: gasman

Wow, I have had a bit of gas but only after doubling up on the pills. Anything that smells this bad must be doing it's job. I guess it's from killing off the bad stuff that causes the stinkies. It smells like the mud down by the stream/ocean during low tide. I was told that's from the dead stuff (fish etc) in the water and mud.

May 16, 2011

Another good blog. I checked the label and this latest purchase has 2billion bacteria!! A lot more than my previous buy. Now on tiny amount and so far so good. Not found kombucha yet but will give it a go. Many thanks

Bloating and Gas
by: Bill

I started taking Jarro-Dophilus EPS a few days ago. At first I just noticed a small amount of extra gas but suddenly after dinner yesterday I got bad gas and bloating which is causing some mild stomach ache and pain.

I stopped taking it because I was afraid that the supplement was contaminated and put something bad in my intestines. I'm concerned that there is some bad strain of bacteria in my intestines now that won't go away.

I'm slightly comforted that most information I can find says this is a temporary problem. Do probiotics permanently recolonize the colon or can I expect all this to pass at some point?

Dawn answered: Jarro-Dophilus EPS is a very reputable brand so there is no risk of contamination. Bloating and gas is a common problem when people first start taking probiotics. It will pass.

Reduce the amount you're taking for a few days so that your body gets used to those extra helpful bacteria.

Second day on Accuflora
by: Anonymous

It states to take two a day ... 1 billion cfu's in each tablet . As I've never taken these so noticed slight bloating& thought it was female issues and realized these pills possibly is the cause. How long should I do just one a day to get " used" to this good bacteria??
Thanks:)

Dawn answered: Most people find that within a few days they can increase the dose.

Gas won't quit
by: Anonymous

I have been using a capsule form of probiotic for about 100 days. The capsule has 10 bil active cultures and claims to be 100% dairy, soy & gluten free. I am lactose, dairy intolerent.
The gas is extensive and very smelly. I thought the gas would go away after awhile, what do you suggest?

Dawn answered: 100 days does seem way too long for this to go on for. Maybe try a different brand.

Flu full fledged!
by: Anonymous

I took Suprema Dophilus for 2 days and I got sooooo sick. I was in bed with the 24 hour flu. Throwing up, fever, headache. All of the above. Don't know if that had something to do with it. But I don't believe in coincidence. Anyway, after reading several instructions on backing off the dosage amount, I will try it. I'm just worried about getting sick like that again.

itchyness

I have been taking acidophilus for two days now and the itchy, hot, stuffyness of my face are driving me crazy. Is this a reaction to the med or just the release of toxins? I do deal with stomach issues, IBS and H.Pylori.

bloating nausea and upset stomach
by: Anonymous

I thought I was having some serious problems until I read this post and decided to check into this. I started taking the vitamin shopper Acidophilus with pectin100 million organisms 3 capsules a day about a week ago and have had a lot of indegestion since approximately the second day belching bloating and gas. One day I made a whey protein shake and I also had eaten a little and my stomach blew up like a balloon and I felt terrible. I starting feeling nauseous ended up throwing up everything felt better for a short time then starting bothering me again then the diarrhea started it stopped next day. I notice I can only eat a few bites of food and I feel stuffed now. I didn't get the chance to take the probiotics that day its been 3 days now. I am scared should take them againg maybe just cut down to one pill?

Acidolphilus
by: Anonymous

I have always had a probelm with gas, but since I have been taking acidolphilus I have been experiencing blood clots (vaginal)I was sure if it was the medication but I stopped and they went away and when I started taking it again they came back. I have done it several times just to make sure, I have contacted a pharmicist and they have never heard of that being a side effect even the company where I purchased the medication from has never heard of that

NO Gas at ALL? - BUT BLOATED!
by: Mrod

CONSTIPATED! Nothing my doc told me to do has been working (eat well, exercise, MiraLax, Metamucil)...so I got desperate and had my first colonic..it seems to have worked a little (I have 2 more appts over the next 2 months) I am 47, 5'2". 118lbs and have been experiencing weight gain and terrible constipation the last 10 months (in Perimenopause)I was told to take 14 billion Probiotic's each day for my constipation (by Hydrotherapist). I was feeling fine the first 2 days it was day 3 and 4 when my side effects hit. Today is day 5 and I was considering stopping altogether because I have been so bloated I look 3 months pregnant!. But I have absolutely NO GAS? So I am confused? Since day 3 & 4 I have had horrible headaches, horrible uncomfortable bloating, very hard abdomen, nausea, lethargy. Should I not give up and continue? How come I have the horrible bloating but absolutely no gas?

Rash
by: Ruth

I looked for an answer to "anonymous" about an itchy face but there was no reply to their comment. I am taking large doses (Dr prescribed) of acidophilus + pectin (the only thing 'new" to my supplement intake) and have a very itchy persistent rash on my torso. I have been sick with c-diff and need the supplement but wonder if my rash may be caused by my illness or the acidophilus. Has anyone had a similar side affect?

I just switched to a different brand of acidophilus after taking it for over a year. I never had any problems except possibly gas. Since I switched to this I have been sick.

300mg capsule of Acidophilus upset my stomach
by: Anonymous

I took a 300 mg capsule of Acidophilus @7pm and by 1am that next morning I my GI track was extremely upset. I had bad diarrhea. My stomach hurt so bad I made me nauseous. I was sitting on the toilet and puking in a bowl at the same time. I don't think I'll try that again.

Bloating
by: Anonymous

I have been taking two capsules of Acidophilus once a day for at least a year 6 billion each capsule, but I am over weight so thought if I stepped up my intake to what it said on the bottle I would at least make my intestines and stomach feel better. I too noticed increased gas (take 9 a day) with meals as per instructions on label. But last few days noticed bloating. Thought I may have a problem but happy to know it is just from my increased dosage. Like I said, I need to lose weight anyway so feeling bloated and full all the time may be a good thing. If it doesn't change soon I will lower my dosage again, but until then will stick it out a little longer. Been on the increase for about 5 days now. Hopefully this will help eventually. Need a good cleaning anyway.

Probiotic Accuflora
by: Leona

I have been taking 2 Accuflora advanced CD (1 pill every 12 hours) for almost 2 weeks, I have experienced horrid gas, a bloated stomache and a huge increase in bowel movements. I assumed this is my body getting use to the good bacteria. I am vastly over weight and hoped this would help me shed some pounds in conjunction with making my system healthy, instead it seems that I am gaining instead of losing. I am following a mediterranean diet and weigh watchers. I am going to stick with it for at least a month more in hopes that it will turn itself around.
Any comments are welcome.

acidophilus and weight gain
by: Anonymous

I have been taking large doses of acidophilus for three years, ever since I was in hospital with diverticula abscess. I have gained approx. 50 lbs since then. I am gassy all the time. Recently I had some sort of virus and wasn't taking the acidophilus. I actually feel better, and have lost a few pounds. Could the acidophilus be causing my weight gain and gas?

Dawn answered: There is no record of Lactobacillus acidophilus causing weight gain in any of the medical research. Depending on the dose you are taking, perhaps it is just too much for you. Cut it back if it is making you feel unwell.

Aquatinted to pain
by: sciantel

Probiotics have been a nightmare for me. I have Lupus and wanted to try to help improve my situation but I found I just cannot take probiotics by pill form or activia or dannon as they just give too much stomach troubles like soft stools, back aches, Colon spasms, hemorrhoids, irritable bowl syndrome. I am going to just stick to my yoplait yogurt. It never upsets my colon. It will take months to straighten my gut out! Worst month of my life! Have to take imodium to get my bowls back to normal. Probiotics were way too many for my delicate system. Overload!

by: Leona

I am following up on my original post 2 years ago. I had to go see my doctor because of the bloating and extreme weight gain and pain. I'm glad I did. The x-ray showed 90% blockage in my intestines and I was full of poop. Hince the bloated tummy and extreme pain all that happened in only a month. It has taken this long to straighten out my system.
My advice, if you have weight gain and extreme intestinal pain please go see your doctor. Mine said this is not uncommon for those who take probiotics.

Bowl churning early morning

For some while have been woken early morning with churning/cramp like symptoms. Have to open bowels then feel light headed and all the stuffing has been taken out of me. I cant function and feeling tired. No energy by legs are like jelly. I am also having trouble keeping weight steady. Have acid reflux as well. Had all sorts of tests done. Just started taking acidophilus. Not sure if this will help. Have had stool tests showing bacteria in gut so had to take rifaximun antibiotic then probiotic drinks, helped a bit. Brought my appetite back but didn't clear the churning properly. Anybody having similar symptoms. I am at my wits end.

So happy to see my tummy problems are not in my head
by: Anonymous

Was put on acidophilus while on a course of antibiotics. Began having heart burn and bloating. I assumed it was the antibiotics. Four days after finishing antibiotics ,but still on acidophilus tummy problems continued with addition of loose stool. Saw my doctor and was told not to stop acidophilus that antibiotics can do this even when finished. After another week I stopped the acidophilus on my own. The loose stool returned to normal within three days. It is now ten days off and no bloating and back to normal. I do have problems with all dietary changes. I will never take this again. Lost six pounds, felt miserable . Not everyone is the same. It is possible that I didn't need it in the first place. Another example of why fix it if it isn't broken. If it makes a difference I don't eat red meat or dark poultry. Haven't for twenty years.
