Solution "hilak Forte" - long been known and widely used in gastroenterological practice drug. I used it repeatedly, as buying independently and on prescription. Opinion about this drug, I got mixed, I do not share the rave reviews about it, but completely useless can not name.
Is "hilak Forte" in Germany and to doubt the quality of the drug is not necessary, the German drugs I love and respect, so when I needed to take medication for the normalization of microflora, among others I'm not thinking chose him.
The drug is available in vials of dark glass volume of 30 ml and 100 mland in individual packages in a sachet in 1.1 ml and 2.2 ml, this format is convenient when you need to take medication while away from home, not to carry a heavy bottle. Now has appeared "hilak Forte" with cherry taste, I have not tried it, but I don't think the manufacturer was able to completely mask the not entirely pleasant taste of the original formula.
I bought the solution both large and small vial. While choosing you need to understand for what period and to what extent the prescribed medication after the expiration date after opening the bottle is only 6 weeks. If you intend long-term treatment in the adult, it is more profitable to take from a large bottle. If the drug requires child, it is best to take small, not to throw away leftovers.
Bottle solution "hilak Forte" is Packed into a cardboard box along with detailed instructions for use.
On the box there is information about the composition of the drug.
The lid of the bottle is tamper-evident in the form of plastic adhesions, the first cranking easily destroy them, and the lid reveals a handy dispenser.
Because the drug is dosed it drip, not milliliters it is important that the dispenser clearly filed the necessary number of drops. Here the dispenser just right.
The solution is a translucent, somewhat turbid liquid, yellowish color and a sour smell and very sour taste.
The taste is, frankly, terribly nasty, personally I just have jaw ache with this acid, so the drug must first dissolve in water or juice. It should be remembered that the solution should not be consumed simultaneously with milk because it will simply clot.

Solution "hilak Forte"probably the only drug that, according to the manufacturer, normalizes the work of intestine as in diarrhea and constipation. This is due to the special mechanism of action of the drug.
Despite the fact that the pharmaceutical market is full of medicines for the recovery of the intestinal microflora, the shelves of pharmacies just bursting with diversity, analogues with identical a part of the solution "hilak Forte" no. Most of the drugs to restore the microflora of the intestine contain either microorganisms in an inactive form, which "come alive" when injected into the favorable environment of the intestines, or substances that stimulate the vital functions of their own, often weakened microorganisms. From "hilak Forte" the mechanism by which the intestinal microflora is fundamentally different.
— violations physiological flora of the small intestine and colon (during and after treatment with antibiotics or sulfanilamidami, radiation therapy);— syndrome of digestive insufficiency, dyspepsia;— diarrhoea, flatulence, constipation;— gastroenteritis, colitis;syndrome of senile intestine (chronic, atrophic gastroenteritis);— disorders of the gastrointestinal tract caused by climate change;— Hypo - and anatsidnyh state;— enterogenous diseases of the gallbladder and liver;— allergic skin diseases (urticaria, endogenously due to chronic eczema);— Salmonella in the stage of convalescence (including the infants).

As can be seen from the instruction indications on the application of the solution, "hilak Forte" quite a lot, and it's not only a violation of the intestinal microflora. Many diseases that require drops are chronic in nature, and the drug used courses to maintain remission and prevent relapses.
Despite its apparent safety and naturalness "hilak Forte" has contraindications.
— hypersensitivity to the drug component;— lactase deficiency/isomaltase, lactose intolerance, glucose-galactose malabsorption.

I first became acquainted with the drug a few years ago, when I had to drink a course of antibiotics. Some time was thinking what drug to buy for the prevention of dysbiosis - "Linex", "Bifidumbacterin" or "Enteral", but in the end I tried "hilak Forte". Make drops "hilak Forte" I started on the fourth day, this time no suggestion of a violation of the intestinal microflora have not been, but it is recommended to take probiotics when you use antibiotics, then you need to. There are drugs that take pleasure in, there are those that do not cause any feelings, but "hilak Forte" refers to drugs to take which is just disgusting and the thought about the next batch starting frowns.
Since no violations of the chair, no bloating or abdominal pain until the end of the course of antibiotics did not appear, we can assume that "hilak Forte" has helped to prevent possible health problems. Although it seems to me that without pain your body kollusim broth of the problems I had. Some other positive changes in your body on a background of reception of drops "hilak Forte" I didn't notice.
The next stage of my acquaintance with drops "hilak Forte" occurred in an active struggle with acne, which has been concerned for several years. What are the only drugs I haven't tried yet. Some have proven very effective and has significantly reduced symptoms of acne, while others only exacerbate the situation.
Many people know that acne treatment includes in addition to the dermatological external preparation also and the drug, normalizing the gastrointestinal tract. I have not ignored these recommendations and regularly prescribed a prophylactic course of probiotics. One of the courses included accepting solution "hilak Forte", of course in conjunction with other drugs. Of course, that miracle not to be expected, my struggle was long and was accompanied by both victories and defeats, but I clearly noticed that during the use of drops "hilak Forte" face was becoming smoother and new lesions did not appear. I do not could notice,but to take "hilak Forte" I had no chance. First, again, that the drug is for me personally very unpleasant in taste. Second, after a couple weeks of taking it I have started heartburn, even though you took the medicine, not on an empty stomach, and during the meal. Heartburn could I endure the time to take the drug for another two weeks (why not just do it for the sake of getting rid of pimples), but then the heartburn was unbearable and I ended the torment.
It is necessary to mention that the drug I took not to exceed these dosages, but even they caused discomfort. But I, a different person. may not experience anything like this and tolerability of the drug will be good.p>
Hilak Forte is taken orally before or during a meal, diluted in a small amount of liquid, except milk.The drug is prescribed 3 times/day.Adults the preparation appoint 40-60 drops (2.2-3.3 ml) on admission; children 20-40 drops (1.1-2.2 ml) at admission; infants - 15 to 30 drops per reception.

Despite the fact that the solution is "hilak Forte" really had a positive impact on the skin condition to get rid of acne using it in combination with other drugs I could not, and after the cancellation of the rashes appeared again, as if there had been those few weeks when I saw sour and suffered from heartburn. Again, mixed feelings, seems to be working the drug, but some weak effect on its application.
Then I for a few years forgot about the solution "hilak Forte" and again to face him I had after the birth of a child.
My daughter from birth, suffered from colic and constipation. What are the only drugs I have not used, but the most effective means remained children's flatus tube. Only her child could prophetsa and, sorry, prokakatsya. All appointed by the pediatrician and handed us the tests did not show any abnormalities in the health of the child, the problem remained unsolvable. "Espumizan" and "cough syrup" at the time of admission helped from colic and flatulence, "Beth calm" and "Plantex" few improved digestion, but to completely solve the problem of constipation failed. The child grew up, I started to introduce solid foods, fiber, entering the body, improved the situation somewhat, but occasionally the child was still stuck and had to resort to not venting tube and a small syringe for the production of enemas or mikroklizma "Microlax".
When my daughter went to kindergarten, the problem is again aggravated, constipation began to be disturbed more often despite proper diet and high activity of the child. The child hesitated once again to ask for a drink of water, and even more embarrassed to go to the toilet, preferring to endure until the evening to go to the toilet at home. Have had to use microclysters "Microlax".
Of course I was worried about the health of the child. I consulted a good pediatrician, went with my daughter on abdominal ultrasound, we were tested. Nowhere pathology have been identified. The pediatrician suggested that the baby long intestine, it is possible that it is growing faster than the child, therefore, develops in the belly loops and there is a violation of passage of intestinal contents. With age, the problem is theoretically supposed to resolve itself when the length of the intestine will correspond to the growth of the child.but it will happen someday, and the child is suffering now. We were recommended to eat plenty of vegetables, fruits, drink plenty of water to massage the tummy, take courses syrup "Duphalac" and solution "hilak Forte".
Having experience of reception syrup "Duphalac", I didn't lay on him much hope. The child took syrup without much enthusiasm, daughter categorically do not like the taste of syrup. Despite the fact that he is very sweet and would like my sweet tooth, the sweetness of this kind of unpleasant, I once drank it reluctantly. From taking "Duphalac" daughter did get a little easier, the stool becomes softer and the child was easier to empty the bowel. But I was still concerned with the question of the causes of this problem, because it is impossible for life to take "Duphalac".
Again on the advice of the pediatrician I changed the syrup "Duphalac" solution "hilak Forte". Not very hard to load the baby acid I gave daughter 20 drops of solution 2 times a day, in the morning before kindergarten and during dinner. To the child not so disgusting it was to drink a drop I dissolved them in Apple juice, the taste of the drug was not felt, the daughter did not resist to taking the medication.
Despite the fact that the child was not of intestinal dysbiosis as such, the solution is "hilak Forte", probably had a positive effect on the digestive tract. During the week the chair was normalized, the child ceased to complain of cramps.
During the whole time of reception of the solution "hilak Forte" issues of concern to child earlier almost was not observed, while in power, nothing has changed. After a three-week course with a "withdrawal syndrome" was not observed, while the child still has not experienced problems with the intestines.
However, the problem again began to return, again constipation for a few days, again complaining of severe pain, bloating, requests to put a laxative candle with glycerin or to make mikroklizmy. At the end I can say not a lasting effect from the reception of the solution "hilak Forte", in the case of adults, that the child's body. For the duration of the course of treatment, it is possible to achieve some positive results in health, once the drug runs out, all gradually returned to normal and has to again seek a more effective drug, the effect of which will be more meaningful and more lasting.
To recommend or not the solution is "hilak Forte" should the attending doctor on the basis of General knowledge about the patient's comorbidities and taking into account other prescribed medicines. For someone it can be very effective, but personally I used it a few times and not particularly impressed. It is possible that I have to hold the child a few additional courses, but until we find other methods of normalization of work of intestines of the child.
