I ordered this product (nutricology brand) and just started it yesterday...

after reading up on c. difficile a few weeks ago and already being concerned about candida albicans, i stumbled upon this probiotic.

highly recommend you reading up on it...

have had diarrhea for 5 days or so with contant rectal itching... i think the itching is a yeast symptom...

trying to be more diligent with diet as well...

[COLOR=Blue]A common side effect of antibiotics is diarrhea, which may be caused by the elimination of beneficial bacteria normally found in the colon. Controlled studies have shown that taking probiotic microorganisms—such as Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium longum, or Saccharomyces boulardii—helps prevent antibiotic-induced diarrhea.

The diarrhea experienced by some people who take antibiotics also might be due to an overgrowth of the bacterium Clostridium difficile, which causes a disease known as pseudomembranous colitis. Controlled studies have shown that supplementation with harmless yeast—such as Saccharomyces boulardii or Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker’s or brewer’s yeast) —helps prevent recurrence of this infection. In one study, taking 500 mg of Saccharomyces boulardii twice daily enhanced the effectiveness of the antibiotic vancomycin in preventing recurrent clostridium infection. Therefore, people taking antibiotics who later develop diarrhea might benefit from supplementing with saccharomyces organisms.

[COLOR=Blue]This probiotic, non-colonizing, non-candida related yeast, aggresively displaces unhealthy candida species in the GI tract. It is popular in Europe as a treatment for post antibiotic diarrhea. The effect of supplementation lasts only while Saccharomyces boulardii is taken and does not colonize the gut. It is useful in quickly diminishing concentrations of unhealthy yeast species and allowing friendly strains of flora to proliferate. [/COLOR]

Do not take the S. boulardii supplementation at the same time as any prescription antifungals like Nystatin, Diflucan, Sporonox, etc.

Hope this helps... seems like many of us are complaing of stomach whoas...
