    It does what it supposed to do; it stopped my acid reflux, however, the side effects of it outweigh the benefit so I am not taking it anymore. Bloating, gas, severe stomach pain, itching. The last straw was when I started an allergic reaction and now have a horrible, itchy rash on leg and foot.
