Align is a probiotic.
I was IBS-C for years, then suddenly seemed to switch to D. With one Amitiza (bowel motility drug) every other day, GF, and Align daily, I have so much fewer flares. I have less cramping, bloating etc. I still have nausea but that's from GERD and anxiety :)
Usually IBS is one of three things (unless it's another misdiagnosed issue) bowel motility, food-often gluten allergy/reaction or gut flora. My doc, rather than take time to figure out which of the three issues I had, she just treated all at once.
Over the treatment period, I've cheated on gluten, ran out of Align and quit the Amitiza because of side effects and each one has a serious affect on my intestines. I keep all three going together and I'm usually good to go (pun intended).
