Comment:
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
