This is my 'wonder' drug. I have IBS, and this drug has rescued me. I could NEVER live without it. I REFUSE to live without it. It lets me have a life. Normally I hate taking meds, but I don't resent taking this one ever. I also love that they're so small and easy to swallow...I have major problems swallowing pills. I have never had a bad side-effect from this, not once in many yea ... Show Full Comment

My symptoms of IBS have increased over the years especially after having my kids. It got to the point where I could not travel anywhere because I would have to find a bathroom on the road or risk messing my pants. I can't believe how this little tiny pill has completely helped me.

I used this medication to treat some diarrhea that woke me out of my sleep. This itty-bitty pill works wonders.

I was diagnosed with west nile virus in June 2005. Within the next month or two I was spending the majority of my days on the toilet. I couldn't work, get a full nights sleep, go to the store, or anywhere really long. I was told i have IBS and THIS DRUG GAVE ME MY LIFE BACK!!!! no one should live their life on a toilet.

Comment:
I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and to make a long story short, I now have diarrhea for the rest of my life due to lack of large intestines. Lonox was a miracle drug for me. It really knocked my bathroom time to minimal. I am truly pleased with the outcome of Lonox.
