Points of recommendation

1-Patients should take ­Mutaflor as a long-term therapy in case of ulcerative colitis to maintain remission.
2-The standard dose should be taken unchewed and with plenty of liquid during a meal, preferably ­breakfast.
3-Potentially occurring flatulence is invariably a sign of a too high dose application and will mostly disappear when the dose is reduced. The daily dose of several capsules must not be taken at one time, but may be distributed over the day and taken with regular meals.
