Has anyone had any experiences with this probiotic?
My dietition recommended it very highly because it came with actual studies done with people with IBD.  Not sure if its just another selling point for a manufacturer or not.  Anyways, here are a couple of links and if anyone has any info. I would be very interested in opinions.  I started taking it this morning.

My GI put me on it for a few months. It was kind of hard for me to get....my drugstore had to order and it was pricey. I didn't really see a difference one way or the other. I ended up switching simply b/c I wanted something cheaper and more convenient to obtain.

Ya....I actually found it at Safeway Pharmacy of all places, but it cost me $77.00 / 100.

I think I paid close to $45 or $50 for 30 days! Hopefully it will help you!

This is the strain of probiotic that's in Floraster...seems worth a try.
