I'm coming off a round of prednisone due to a crohns flare and my doc suggested taking a probiotic to help the flora in my stomach recover from the harsh steroid.

Any suggestions as to which brand and specific probiotic I could take? My doc did suggest that it not be too strong. Also, I can't go with yogurt due to lactose intolerance.

Thank you for your time.

Have you tried Greek yogurt?  Much less lactose than other dairy.

Flora Udo's Choice Advanced Adult's Probiotic is the best, imo.

Thank you for the suggestion, Princess L. But for now I have to stay completely away from any lactose. Having a crohns flare makes me hardcore lactose intolerant.

Thanks, Qwert II. I looked up some reviews for that and a lot of people seem to really like it. I'll look more into it and see about giving it a try.

I've used this stuff, and it's the bomb.
