Drug Information:
Florastor is a specific form of yeast also known as Brewer's Yeast, Hansen CBS 5926, Levure de Boulangerie, and Probiotic.

Florastor is likely effective in alternative medicine as an aid in preventing diarrhea caused by taking antibiotics, or by using a feeding tube. This medicine is also likely effective in treating diarrhea in babies and children.
