Positive 833 "BTW, my mom's doc told her that Florastor in particular is very good for helping ...I always put her on Florastor when she's on an antibiotic. And then once that's done, back onto her normal probiotic."Read more positive discussions

Prescription drug interaction with probiotics
| Sandra12
I am taking potassium, allopurinol, triamterene/hctz, simvastatin, ibuprofen and
amitriptyline. Does a probiotic pill interact with any of these prescription drugs?

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.

UTI from Florastor
| UTI
Not sure if Florastor gave me an UTI, but makes me wonder. I never get uti's. I am afraid to quit taking it because of the c-diff, I had 5 months ago. I spent 5 days in the hospital. It was the worst. Now I found out I have an uti and concern about taking an antibiotic. I am also experiencing constipation.
