General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

I know according to physiology and their website Florastor is not supposed to cause yeast infections but I always end up getting them once I've been taking it consistently for a couple days.
I have to think the yeast species out competes another bacterial strain that would ordinarily prevent the growth of candida. It's rather unfortunate since Florastor is highly effective. The hunt continues.
