Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth
Posted 19 January 2008 - 05:19 PM
I was recently diagnosed with intestinal bacterial overgrowth. I seem to remember someone posting that they have/had this. I am wondering how long it takes to get some relief from the symptoms.
My gastro has me alternating an antibiotic and a probiotic for 6 weeks. The fact that she has me doing this for 6 weeks leads me to think that it's not something easily fixed.
I'd love to hear from others who have had this situation.

I had bacterial overgrowth about 3 years ago. I took Flagyl antibiotic for a month and my problem is solved.

It looks like this is a problem that comes and goes but is manageable once diagnosed and you get on the right treatment. The treatment sounds like antibiotics and probiotics however it looks for you. That is VERY encouraging! Thanks for giving me hope!
