    I take some daily medications that cause bowel irregularity. This fixed the problem within a few days and has kept it at bay. I have tried MANY other solutions, and nothing helped except this. I feel good about taking a natural product instead of more medicine.

    My GI doctor suggested I try a probiotic supplement for IBS. He said not to pay attention to the number of organisms and just get the cheapest thing and try it for a month. He said it's not proven but worth a try. The directions on this website (drugstore.com) say to take 2 caplets daily, but the bottle says to take 2 caplets 3 times per day. I thought I was getting a 30 day supply, but this bottle is only a 10 day supply. Definitely not the "cheapest thing". Worse is that the first time I took it, I took 2 at once and they are rough so they scratched my throat pretty bad. I have to take one at a time with a big gulp of water, and even then they can scratch. I might try dipping them in peanut butter first. Because of the scratchiness I won't buy these again so I'll never know if they work for me. And from now on I *am* going to pay attention to the number of organisms or at least the mg in each pill. But it seems hard to compare products. For example this product says there are 3.7 mg of organisims per serving. Natrol says their pill is 100 mg, but how much of that is organisms? I guess I have research to do.

      Comments about Sundown Naturals Probiotic Acidophilus Xtra, Caplets, 60 ea:

      Drug store.com says "For adults, take one (2) caplets daily, preferably with a meal. As a reminder, discuss the supplements and medications you take with your health care provider"

      The directions on the label say "For adults, take two (2) caplets three times daily, preferably with meals."

      I gave 5 stars based on how the product works for me....I am not including drug store.coms directions in my star rating as thier error does not affect the quality and effectiveness of the pill.

      Being aware of that this is a great product. I have loved sundown brand for a while now. Being allergic to wheat and dyes it meets my satisification.

      Helps with yeast infections

        Comments about Sundown Naturals Probiotic Acidophilus Xtra, Caplets, 60 ea:

        I highly recommend this product for those who suffer from regular yeast infections that seem to be linked to your monthly cycle. My OB/GYN recommended I take acidophilus for mine, and I have noticed the best results with this particular product. I also take AZO Yeast with this. At first I was using the regular version of the Sundown Acidophilus with the AZO Yeast, but I see the most improvement now that I have switched to the Xtra version.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Super fast delivery. Much faster than expected.

        Not effective. Does not have coating and so it's hard to swallow. It's powdery.

          Comments about Sundown Naturals Probiotic Acidophilus Xtra, Caplets, 60 ea:

          I would have given this product at least 4-stars but they caused me severe bloating. They were very effective regarding my digestive regularity issues. After 3-days of use however, I became very bloated. I did some research on the internet to find out if that is a possible side affect of taking probiotics and it is. I ended up discontinuing use. I was taking 2-caplets a day. I plan on scaling down to maybe 1-caplet every other day and see how that works.

            Comments about Sundown Naturals Probiotic Acidophilus Xtra, Caplets, 60 ea:

            I have struggled with bad breath for as long as I can remember. I am constantly googling the causes and what home remedies can combat my {past tense} halitiosis. I have always known that most bad breath comes from the mouth, and have recently discovered that the problem was most likely an imbalance of good and bad bacteria. After googling that some more, I discovered that there were certain strains of good bacteria that were necessary to a healthy mouth. That's when I came across acidophilus probiotics. What made me choose this one was a comment left by one person for this product. She talked about how she struggled with bad breath also. I have only been using this product a few days, and already I feel a BIG difference in the way my mouth looks and feels. It just feels fresher. Before when I would eat something, I would feel like I had to brush my teeth even if I did so right before I ate. Now I can eat several meals without having that nasty taste on the back of my tongue. There isnt nearly as much buildup on my tongue, and I already feel more confident. I am very pleased with this product. I gave it 4 stars only because it has to be refrigerated. I work 12 hour shifts and it would be nice to have these handy. But I spoke to a pharmacists who said that just taking the recommended dose out for a while isnt as harmful as taking the whole bottle out of the fridge. As long as the dose is kept in a cool, dry place until your ready to take it.

                I'm normally a skeptic, but this stuff is really good. I have struggled with bad breath and acne for a very long time and have tried everything. Since I began taking this, my breath has improved and I haven't had a break-out. It's almost too good to be true. I'm on my second bottle now and so far so good.
