Probiotic and nausea

on 4/9/13 5:20 am - CA

Hi,  just started taking a probiotic last week, can't remember the brand.  I've been having trouble keeping solid foods with alot of fat (bacon, other fried stuff) down since Friday.  I get really nauseous and sometimes end up throwing up.


Is this normal at the beginning of taking a probiotic or something I need to discuss with Dr. K at my appointment tomorrow?


P.S.  I can keep liquids, i.e., protein shakes, down with no problem.

I'm not certain it's your probiotic. I'd discontinue the use of it and see if things improve. If not, then it's def. not it.

Its normal for probiotic to cause some Gi issue, but thats usually on the other end- with bloating, gas and loose stools until the bacteria regulates.  That only lasts a few days.  Vomiting is NOT a normal side effect.  I would discontinue the probiotic and see what happens though- it could always be a filler or something that isnt agreeing with you.

I would speak with Dr K about it.  He needs to know everything you are going through!

Well.  My bloodwork seems ok, but the hernia has GOT TO GO, soon.  That's where the nausea is coming from.  NOT happy.
