There is no exact answer. In general probiotics can be taken daily just like a vitamin supplement on an ongoing basis. They are safe and cannot do any harm.
If you have a chronic problem (like some people have with vaginal candida), continue as long as you feel necessary. You can have a break and then start a supplement again if your symptoms recur.
