Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Usually probiotics helps in replacing the gut flora in antibiotic induced diarrhea or infections diarrhea. Less useful in constipation unless you're suffering from IBS-C variety. Take high fiber diet and do regular exercise with plenty of water is useful. Benefiber or Metamucil fiber is useful in bulk formation of stools.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
