Winnie, I know what you have been going through. I had reached a point where I thought I was going to have to quit my job. Forget going anywhere! Well, I have been taking L. Acidolphilus for about a month now, and I am so much better. No IBS. My energy level is increasing by the day. I am getting things accomplished that have gone undone for the past year because I have been so drained. Give it a try. You won't regret it.
