There is nothing wrong with acidophilus, however when I'm having flares my doctor recommends I don't supplement my system with those kinds of things that will aid my already overactive immune system. Better to try first, I would say, is some metamucil, etc. I take the capsule kind you can buy when I'm having a lot of diarrhea to increase my fiber intake without the roughage. And be sure to also be drinking a lot of electrolyte-boosting liquids like Gatorade and Powerade.
