Comment:
After taking for 4 weeks kept wondering why i'd get so sleepy during the day then decided to read up on how others did. Now i understand the sleepiness but tried to not take the meds for a day and had to continue but it works when you take it as prescribed. Already had one surgery trying to avoid another one just don't like taking pills everyday!

Comment:
My IBS went away very quickly after I started. I was taking the dose recommended, sometimes less if I could but never more than the maximum. Within a few weeks of bliss I noticed I had problems concentrating. I found it very difficult to work.
