Dan Active Vomiting and Diarrhea in Children
Marketed as Lactobacillus casei Defensis or Immunitas(s) and more recently as L. casei Danone. Each bottle is claimed to contain 10 billion of these bacteria. In addition Actimel contains the traditional yogurt cultures Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus and Streptococcus salivarius subsp. thermophilus.
So I want to give all parents a heads up to be very careful with DanActive Probiotic Drink. My 8 year old son drank this on an empty stomach and an hour later he was vomiting. We are on day 1 of this experience and I will log what happens on day 2. He cannot keep anything down and I am hoping that in the morning he will be able to drink a little water or we will be making a trip to the emergency room.
He has been drinking one bottle a day a few times a week with breakfast for a few weeks now and everything has been fine.
Next day update! All is well with my son! He was at a point where he could not hold any liquids down. Today, he was able to keep down ginger ale and eat some chicken soup.
I drink this product daily and have no issues with it. The reaction my child experienced is concerning to say the least.
