Not sure if you're aware, your GI could write a script for the VSL #3 DS formula (double strenght) and possibly get your insurance to pay for it...some do, some don't. If you do get the DS formula or if it's your first time taking vsl 3, go easy...and increase slowly. It can cause some additional abdominal discomfort if your body isn't used to it.
