Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Probiotics, such as Lactobacillus spp., Saccharomyces spp.,Bifidobacterium spp. and Bacillus clausii, are commonly used in acute diarrhea. Econorm Sachet , a probiotic preparation contains Saccharomyces Boulardi whereas Novogermina Suspension contains Bacillus Clausii. Both are equally effective. Laymen like you can get confused.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
