Hello Becky,

Thank you for this question.

At the present time, I know that many gastroenterologists don't mind probiotics.

Some doctors don't recommend probiotics. And some don't recommend probiotics with biological agents like Remicade. The reason for not recommending it is because Remcicade lowers the immune response in a way. And some probiotics can cause immune system boost which some medical practitioners believe is not a good idea.
There is no right or wrong answer here. There are not enough studies that would prove or disproof the interaction.

I use probiotics that are made by very reputable companies which claim them not to be immune boosters but rather maybe immune moduling agents. I couldn't find studies on your probiotics at this time.

Generally, probiotics are really great idea!

I use two of them for best possible effect: Multi-probiotics that you can get only from health practitioner like myself or Floramyces (S.Boulardi strains) from Designs For Health.

Let, me know if you need more info.
