Customer Question

I bought a vitiman called trubiotics and it is causing bloating, cramping, and gas. Is there anything that can counter act this. I have had this for several hours. I just purchased this recenty because for the past 5 days I have been getting so bloated and constipated
I have always been regular and been able to go. I was sick for a few.days and did not eat or drink much so I am assuming that is what threw my system out of whack. I must have started with to high of a dosage. I just can not stand feeling like this! I took the vitiman around 2pm just before I ate.

Hi Karri,

Sorry you aren't feeling well. Trubiotics is actually supposed to help digestive health, so it is unfortunate that you having the opposite effect, but this can be a common occurrence when first starting a probiotic. Since you haven't been eating or drinking well, I recommend that you temporarily suspend the use of Trubiotics until you are able to resume your normal intake then restart Trubiotics at the lowest possible dose. In the meantime, I recommend that you purchase Gas X and Miralax over the counter. The Gas X will help reduce the gas/bloating and the Miralax will help produce a bowel movement without causing bloating or cramping.

Please reply with any further questions. I am here to help:)
