    Do you know if there is any assistance for probiotics? My son takes VSL#3 and it is almost $367 monthly….

    • $367/month? Wow, that’s very expensive. Is that for the prescription concentration?

      It looks like VSL Pharmaceuticals offers a savings card for the two prescription formulations they offer, which you can get here: http://vsl3ds.com/. The savings it offers is between $20-80/month, so I’m not sure if it will help you greatly. I will add this to the list.
