I have been on different versions of this drug for years for a spastic colon. It gives almost complete relief from this chronic condition. My concern is the price. It is a generic and has been very inexpensive and all of a sudden it is very expensive and hard to get. I am a mess without it, but it is way overpriced for my fixed income.

This medication has changed my life. I was suffering from severe cramps, bloating and IBS symptoms and this medication literally takes away the bloating and cramping as soon as it starts. It can make you a little drowsy, so using it during the day can be a challenge, but overall this is one of the most effective medications I have ever used.

My severe IBS has gotten better then it has been in years when combined with lomotil. I do still have some pain but the urgency and severe constant diarreah all day is now limited to the first hour of my day while I am still at home. Much easier to live.
