What causes brown stool while on Florastor?
Normal effect of Probiotic
Hello XXXXXXX Healey,
Thank you for trusting HealthcareMagic,
The stool changes you are noticing is the normal effect of probiotic. Probiotics can make your gut environment slightly acidic so that the good bacteria can thrive and over rule the bad bacteria. This is the reason of initial side effects of Probiotics like gas, bloating, changes in stool color/consistency etc.
This will eventually go away once your gut gets used to the effects of probiotics, which is usually in 1 week. This is completely normal and nothing to be worried about.
Hope this answers your questions
