I always had stomach issues since the time I was a child, some due to foods reactions, some due to stress, at 31 I had to have my gallbladder removed.

I was prescribed this medication for chronic diarrhea associated with having my gall bladder out in july 2009. i now am able to enjoy going out to eat with my family and friends and do not have to worry about the bathrooms being near. i mix it with an orange drink and it takes the chalky taste away and you dont even know you are drinking it.
