Probiotics : Probably help more with prevention than treatment and may be reasonable in patients with recurrent disease. Saccharomyces boulardii and lactobacillus rhamnosus have been studied the most. There is good evidence for fecal transplant] to treat c. Difficile but still considered investigational and not without potential risks.
