List of information needed before taking the medicine

If your doctor has informed you of an intolerance to certain sugars, contact him/her before taking this medicine.

Contraindications

In case of doubt, it is essential to ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Precautions for use; special warnings

Use caution with ULTRA-LEVURE 50 mg, capsule:

Warnings:

- The use of this medicine is not recommended in patients with galactose intolerance, Lapp lactase deficiency or glucose or galactose malabsorption syndrome (rare hereditary diseases).

- This medicine contains sucrose. Its use is not recommended in patients with fructose intolerance, glucose-galactose malabsorption syndrome or sucrase/isomaltase deficiency (rare hereditary diseases).

- It is recommended not to open the capsule in the environment of patients with a central venous catheter, in order to avoid any colonisation of the catheter, in particular by hand.
Indeed, it has been reported that patients with a central venous catheter, even those not treated with S. boulardii,have experienced very rare cases of fungemia (passage of the yeast into the bloodstream), most often resulting in fever and Saccharomyces positive blood cultures.

- For children over 6 years of age and adults, you should consult your doctor as soon as possible in the following cases

o if there is no improvement after 2 days of treatment,

o if fever or vomiting occurs,

o in case of blood or mucus in the stools,

o in case of intense thirst, dry tongue sensation. In fact, these signs indicate the beginning of dehydration, i.e. a significant loss of liquid due to diarrhoea. Your doctor will then judge the need to prescribe rehydration which can be done orally or intravenously.

Precautions for use:

In children over 6 years and adults, this treatment is a complement to dietary rules:

- rehydrate with abundant drinks, salted or sweetened, in order to compensate for fluid losses due to diarrhoea (the average daily water intake is 2 litres) ;

- eat during the diarrhea,

o by excluding certain foods, especially raw vegetables, fruit, green vegetables, spicy dishes, and iced foods or drinks,

o by favouring grilled meats and rice.

ULTRA-LEVURE is made up of living cells: do not mix it with a liquid or food that is too hot (over 50°C), iced or alcoholic.

In case of doubt, do not hesitate to consult your doctor or pharmacist.
