Saccharomyces boulardii is used in the treatment of diarrhoea, infectious diarrhoea and diarrhoea associated with antibiotics
How it works
Saccharomyces boulardii is a live micro-organism, when given in adequate amounts, provides health benefits. It restores the balance of good bacteria (micro-organism) in the intestine that may be destroyed with the use of antibiotics or in intestinal infections.
Common side effects
- Avoid taking Saccharomyces boulardii along with steroids (medications that weaken the immune system) as they might increase the chances of getting sick.

- Take Saccharomyces boulardii at least 2 hours before or after antibiotics. This is because taking Saccharomyces boulardii along with the antibiotics can reduce their effectiveness.
