I found an old post on here saying that VSL#3 might be available as a prescription. However, I can't find any mention of it on my insurance company's website. Can anyone share any info on this?
For those of you who have tried it, did it help?
For those of you who currently take it, how much do you take, where do you buy it, and how much does it cost?
I am currently using Culturelle, which is Lactobacillus GG. I think it might be what put me into a short-term remission in December. Why it's not working now, though, I can't say...maybe my condition wasn't so severe at first. Anyway, I'm considering giving the VSL#3 a try.
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly, Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).
