What benefits have you found from Align?

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

I started taking Align 2 weeks ago, it is starting to work. I have hope in something working for the first time in a long time. I have been still taking fiber choice along with it.

You can buy it at most pharmacies, they usually have it behind the counter. I bought it at Bi-Lo in NC but have seen it other places.

Thank you for sharing. I will have to look for Align the next time I am at the drug store or Costco. I've had IBS-C for years and I have yet to find anything that relieves my symptoms.

Where can you find Align? At the grocery store or pharmacy?

I have been taking Align for just over 3 weeks. One thing about probiotics is they take a while to establish a colony in your intestine. Also, if you read the insert, sometimes gas and bloating get worse before they get better. Best way to take a probiotic is either at bed or when you 1st wake up, whenever your stomach is empty for 30 mins.

Cost, I am in NC and it was about 18.00, Costco also sells it in the pharmacy.

My experience is it did get worse for about 2 weeks, last week it seemed to start getting a little better. I take it 1st thing in AM and then citracel at night,

Align is a probiotic aka- good bacteria for your intestines, which helps with bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea and ugency. Take once a day.

I take it along with citrucel in the morning and then at night i take one capful of miralax to keep things moving right along.

I do take citrucel in the morning and in the evening i take one cupful of miralax and a daily dose of Align. It costs approx 29.00 for a 30 day supply. Between all three I do go now regularly and fee l better, BUT I do still have bought with gas and bloating. I am playing with certain types of foods which you know is a challenge to find the culprits. I was making a processed food for lunch such as Lean Cuisine or Smart Ones and for 2 weeks now I am eating real food and it seams to have calmed down the gas a bit but not completely yet. ANyone have suggestions for that?

I have HORRIBLE IBS...but not with the constipation, the other! It is bad in the mornings, then seems to taper off in the afternoons and evenings. It is so dibilitating, that it keeps me home most mornings. I usee to load up on Imodium, but after awhile it just seems to clog me up. My doctor also recommended the Align. It seemed to help. But, I switched to the Phillips Colon Clense , it is also a probiotic, and really does about the same and not as expensive, if that is an issue for you. I switched because I had to always order from my pharmacy and wait for it. I am on this diet with my husband, starting today, so we will see how I do. I just went to the store and bought everything we need for meals...so we are not tempted to eat the wrong thing. Here goes.........

This was a sample from the doctors office so I'm not sure about the cost.
(P.S. what a truly unpleasant condition and topic for discussion...I hope this can help you though.)
This combination really seems to have resolved most of the symptoms.

Thank you so much for sharing. Many of us need something desperately.
Is the Align expensive?

Just wanted to post that I have been having horrible IBS-c and week after week the only thing that helped was finally after about 7 days, to take an over the counter lax.
Not what I wanted to do, but the only thing that helped. Recently I tried a few other products. I started this the day after I took a lax. After my morning coffee and just one light meal I take Align ( an over the counter probiotic supplement, then directly after that I take Citrucil ( I need about 14 tablets) with 1-2 glasses of warm water.
I can not believe it but it is working daily.
No horrible pains or cramps.
Cant believe it! My GI doc recommended the Align.
Hope it helps someone else.
