Problems with Gas, bloating, and black stool

For several days I have been taking a diet pill that included lactobacillus acidophilus in the ingredients (a bacteria to assist in breaking down food in the colon).  I read this bacteria can be very dangerous, cause gas, and all sorts of other things.  I am very scared I harmed myself now by taking this diet drug.  What can I do to rid my body of this bacteria.  I also feel sluggish, have severe cramping, and dizziness.

Thanks
