Flagyl helped jump start me out of my flare but I made sure I was taking probiotics along with the antibiotics. Florastor is the probiotic yeast S. Boulardii that is immune to antibiotics. Taking other probiotics along with Florastor while taking antibiotics will help prevent C. Diff and other malevolent bacteria from taking hold.
You should continue with the probiotics even after ending your course of antibiotics. I had good experience with the antibiotics and wish you the same.
