I hope that this message finds you all well!
I've been very happy on brand name Colozal or "Oceanside" generic (which I think is the same exact formulation), but the Apotex version tended to give me looser stools, at least that was my impression at the time.
Unfortunately my pharmacy, and every one that I've called thereafter, can no longer get either of my preferred brands. I remember that a few others here are on this drug and that some, like me, have preferences when it comes to specific brands and formualtions. I think, for example, that several of the less desirable formulations have titanium dioxide as a listed additive, which we now suspect can exacerbate IBD in and of itself (https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/07/170719100521.htm). Seems pretty silly (and potentially it's all in trace enough QTY that it doesn't matter much -- I realize I may be nitpicking a little bit), but I don't like the thought of rocking the boat now!
So if anyone here who still gets a version of Colozal that he/she likes could please clue me in to what that is and who distributes it, that would be fantastic!
Thank you all for the help and support.
