Hi, I got my J pouch in 2018 and on Dec 2019 after having my J pouch scoped found mild pouchitis . Dr. has me trying masalamine suppositories . Been on it for two weeks haven't really seen much difference. Wondering if going on a good probiotic might help with it . Can anyone recommend a very good probiotic for someone with a J pouch Thank you
Hi, most of the jpouchers take either vsl3 or Visbiome, both are basically the same. There is also a double strength but requires a doctor script. It's not cheap but it's supposed to help with pouchitis. I am taking one packet twice a day, I was only taking one but I was still getting reoccurrences so I have upped the dosage.
There are others but I don't know much about them. Good luck
I take a very high dose of VSL #3 DS (4 packets/day). I think it helps, but thank goodness my insurance covers it. Visbiome may be easier to find, and (as PouchLogic wrote) is very similar.
