They gave me Flora Q in the hospital last year. After I was discharged, I went to the pharmacy and the pharmacist told me they sell it over the counter...but it was way too expensive. My nutritionist suggested Powerdophilus by Country Life. I purchase it online. My GI doctor said it was fine. I take two per day with food. One with breakfast and one with dinner and keep them refrigerated. Good luck!
