When choosing a remedy, it is recommended to consult a doctor. He will prescribe a suitable remedy, depending on the indications and diagnosis.
Most often, “Hilak forte” is prescribed for skin diseases, after treatment with drugs that inhibit the work of the digestive tract, some gastrointestinal diseases. The second medication is used when there is a lack of enzymes, intestinal disorders.
It is impossible to say which of the remedies is better, since they are equally effective and have slightly different effects. “Hilak forte” creates favorable conditions for the life of bacteria in the intestines, and “Bifiform” inhabits the organ with these bacteria.
With candidiasis (thrush), Bifiform is more suitable. It strengthens the immune system and regulates the intestinal microflora. If you take the drug at the same time as antifungal drugs (tablets and suppositories), then it creates optimal conditions for recovery and helps prevent thrush.
For this reason, the simultaneous use of these medications is possible. The drugs interact well with each other and complement the action of each other.
At cost, funds are in one category. A bottle of 100 ml “Hilak forte” costs about 450-500 rubles, a package of capsules “Bifiform” 30 pcs. costs about the same.
With a healthy intestinal microflora, a person does not experience problems with digestion and the functioning of the digestive tract.

The main difference is that “Hilak forte” is a prebiotic, that is, it contains ready-made metabolic products that are produced by the body’s normal flora, and does not contain beneficial bacteria themselves. The drug creates a favorable environment in the intestine for the reproduction and growth of beneficial bacteria.
“Bibiform” is a probiotic, that is, it contains ready-made beneficial bacteria that inhabit the intestinal lumen. When taking the drug, intestinal microflora is established and digestive disorders disappear.
“Hilak forte” has only one form of release – drops for internal use. The second remedy is characterized by a variety of release forms and is available in the form of capsules for adults and powder, chewable tablets and drops for children. Children’s forms of the drug are intended for the treatment and prevention of dysbiosis.

It is also recommended to feed the infant with an artificial mixture, rather than breast milk, during treatment.
“Bifiform” cannot be combined with alcoholic beverages, since ethanol negatively affects the intestinal mucosa and reduces the effect of the medication. “Hilak forte” is also not recommended to combine with alcoholic beverages.
