I am hoping that this is the medicine for me. I have been on so many things and am really left with no hope for a cure for what ever this is.

    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

    I too take this for diarrhea after having my gallbladder removed. I hate the texture of it and have since made pills from it. I ordered empty 00 gelatin capsules and a capsule maker and make a bunch at once. 12 capsules are a dose but I've found I can take less depending on the type of food I'm planning on eating. I usually take 4-6 per meal. I have very few accidents now and know when ... Show Full Comment
