Notice: Due to the fact that the risk of a systemic colonization with Saccharomyces cerevisiae HANSEN CBS 5926 (synonym: Saccharomyces boulardii) is not assessable yet, patients with a heavily impaired immune defense system (e.g. HIV infections, organ transplantation, leukemia, malignant tumors, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, long-term large-dose cortisone treatment) and patients with a central venous catheter should not use this drug.
Take special care with YOMOGI® With diarrhoea lasting longer than 2 days or accompanied by blood in the stool or a rise in temperature, you should consult a doctor. If diarrhoea persist for more than 6 hours in infants under 6 months – 12 hours in children under 3 years, 24 hours in children aged 3 – 6 years or 48 hours in adults and children over 6 years, seek medical advice. With diarrheal diseases, especially in children, attention must be paid to the use of fluid and electrolytes as the most important therapeutic measure. Diarrhoea in children demands consulting the doctor. If symptoms persist consult your doctor or healthcare practitioner. If microbiological stool examinations are carried out during or shortly after treatment with this drug, the examining laboratory should be informed about the treatment because otherwise false-positive results may be obtained.
