Lotronex has made a tremendous diference in my quality of life. I teach middle schoolers, and before this drug I was looking for another career.

I wish a higher dose was available to me, but as long as this dosage keeps working like this, I'll be happy.

My life was miserable before taking Lotronex and was faced with having to quit my job because I travel often. I was constantly seeking out bathroom locations and an embarassing situation in a cab ride just about made me hand in my resignation. This drug has without a doubt saved my life and I have no fear of traveling or meeting clients for meals. I don't take it every day, only when I reco ... Show Full Comment

I do not know what I would do without this medication. I have severe diarrhea. This pill makes me normal. Imodium was good for me, but it did not form the stool. This pill forms the stool. I have been on this medication for several years now. I hope it never stops working for me.
