gmasusie, the probiotics are over the counter at the drugstore or at health food stores. VSL#3 is one that has been shown through research to have benefit for some; it's pretty expensive and I had to order it over the internet. Others will be available locally for you and may work just as well. The probiotics never made much difference for me, but they do help a lot of us. I'm sure some of those folks will be around to give you more specific information as the day goes on.
If you have more information about
your condition, it can be helpful to post it so others can be of more help. For instance, where in the colon is your disease located, and what medications are you on?
Welcome to the community. I hope it is as helpful to you as it has been to me!
Left-sided UC diagnosed 2001. Taking Colazal and Imuran, Remicade infusions and moving into remission. Finally off steroids after four years!
Now in remission for almost two years. Remicade has been my wonder drug.
