I Too was prescribed this medication after having my gallbladder removed in 1996. I don't care that the taste is chalky it is a great trade off after all these years of being afraid to eat or drink anything, especially when it is a social situation! After so many years I actually feel normal again. What a wondeful change, I didn't think there was help; but there was in fact, life after gal ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had suffered with chronic diarrhea since having my gallbladder removed in my 20's. I am now in my 50's and over the years it just got progressively worse. It was to the point I had to schedule errands in between what I considered safe bathroom breaks. I found myself staying home as much as I could. I could not go out to eat with friends because I could not even drive a 10 minute drive to ... Show Full Comment
