I'm usually in the UC forum, and I have overcome my UC problems but still have lingering IBS issues.  My mother-in-law was recently told by her gastro to start taking an OTC product called Florastor.  She said it got rid of her diarrhea within two days (and she even felt a bit constipated).  Has anyone tried this?  If you have, I'd like to hear about your experience with it.
DX:  Pancolitis as of 9/08 (Proctitis as of 1/08) and IBS

Hi, Kiss520-

I'm glad to hear your mother-in-law had a positive experience with Florastor! Florastor contains a beneficial yeast probiotic called Saccharomyces boulardii (S. boulardii), which has been clinically tested for more than 50 years. S. boulardii helps to eliminate or prevent diarrhea by promoting the growth of good microbiota, helping to remove pathogens from the intestines and neutralizing bacterial toxins.

Florastor been proven effective in managing a wide variety of intestinal problems, but is often used to help with:
-Acute gastroenteritis (general, sudden onset diarrhea, such that is associated with food poisoning, etc.)
-Antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD)
-Traveler’s diarrhea
-Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea (C. diff)
-Chronic inflammatory intestinal conditions, like ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease

After recently undergoing intensive voluntary testing, Florastor has been named to the list of Approved Quality Products on **** the leading provider of independent test results and information to help consumers and healthcare professionals evaluate health, wellness and nutrition products.
