Comment:
This drug ended 5 years of almost continuous GI bleeding within 48 hours. A c-diff infection acquired at an upscale restaurant frequented by medical professionals was difficult to clear and exaggerated an existing tomato intolerance. Each unintended exposure (e.g. Most brand of Tuna now canned with a vegetable broth that includes tomato) would provoke a severe short term reaction (diarrhea, anaphy ... Show Full Comment

This medication worked immediately, versus being diagnosed to take prilosex for acid reflux, which still does not relieve those symptoms.

This regimen has given me my life back! I suffered for 9 years with chronic nausea and abdominal pain. In the past 6 weeks I've only had two episodes of mild nausea and only treated one. I was sick every day, all day triggered by food sensitivities that I was unaware of and discovered accidently ( ex soy, dairy)

Comment:
My son has mastocytosis and was having problems with constipation. When he was put on Gastrocrom, it took less than a week for my son to start going to the bathroom regularly.

An often overlooked drug that is still very useful.
