Still sorting things out, but currently being treated as antibiotic dependent pouchitis. Florastor was suggested when I was on cipro plus flagyl. But I read a post here that makes me wonder if I still need florastor to prevent c-diff since I’ve been on Xifaxan only for about a year....and if VSL (or Visbiome) would be a better choice?
VSL cost has always been the deterrent, but I’m revisiting the idea. That said, I’m wondering the thoughts after this week’s court decision regarding VSL. I’ve not seen any articles where the well known clinics and doctors have deviated from VSL in favor of Visbiome. However, the court findings about VSL actually selling a reverse engineered imitation product, not telling consumers this and the original creator saying it’s not as effective as his original formula ...is concerning. The VSL website has been down for days after the court decision.
Does one jump to Visbiome, which is supposed to be the original formula? There seems little information available other than what’s shown on the Visbiome website.
With a condition that involves trial and error to manage, the thought of taking very expensive magic beans is not okay.
Any information is greatly appreciated.
