I started not eating anything 5 or 6 hrs, before I take them, and I have no problems. When I did have the cramps, I took 2 capfuls of Pepto Bismol, and they stopped in about 10 mins.

Comment:
I took this product to relieve the constipation I was having, it really did the job. As with the other reviewers it does give you bad cramps, however, mine went away as soon as I had my bowel movement.
