I started taking this medicine and within an hour of taking it, the nausea, and abdominal pains started. By the second day, the abdominal pains worsened, and became unbearable. I became very bloated, and this medicine was very uncomfortable and ineffective.

Effectiveness, yes. Easy to use, sure, eat before taking and swallow the pill, easy. Satisfaction, NO WAY! One does and 18 hours later I was feeling much better. Then the rash started, and the itching, and then the hot sensation. I was lucky a co worker had benedryl. I do not have reactions to drugs and I really reacted to this one.
