Probiotics And Seizures

Probiotics And Seizures

Anyone else experience increase in seizures when they take probiotics/postbiotics?

as a hippie, i know a little bit. too much of anything will go bad. too much water will drown you, increase or decrease of air will make you loopy. same with vitamins. some probiotics are really cheap therefore may not have the right mix. the side effects are gass and upset stomach, but if you have auto immune problems (gut problems), ask your dr. if your healthy, it is probably something else other than the probiotics.

In my case caffeine sets off a rediculous amount of seizures.
