the dizzyness and brain fog is due to detox. Your body is full of yeast (we all have yeast, but because of the foods we eat and other things, the bad yeast overtakes the good yeast). So the probiotic chews up the bad yeast and it has to get out of the body some way. If you do not drink enough water, it'll come out different ways. rashes, brain fog, etc... Keep taking them, because every body should take at least one a day!

If I stop taking probiotics I crave sweets really bad. I have been on Probiotics for several years and have started having a wet discharge not sure if it is because of Probiotics.

When I started to take Probiotics I became dizzy and had brain fog. Possibly, I should switch brands. I am debating on continuing or stopping. I have stopped for a few days, and I do feel better. I have noticed that my desire for sugar is less with the Probiotics that I had been taking. Possibly, it will take time for my body to adjust.
