Comment:
I have had bowel surgery and any gas buildup is very painful. Taking 2 Beanos before meals has been a life saver. It seems to reduce the gas and I don't have any side effects.

Have taken Beano twice in the last month. The first time I had severe cramps the day after. The second time I had severe cramping and diarrhea within 45 minutes of taking it. Will not take this ever again.

Comment:
This product works for me. I was having horrible gas pains and diarrhea often, especially after eating. I started taking this medicine after a friend told his story about having digestive issues, going to doctors who couldn't figure it out and hearing a tech say "you are awfully gassy" and it dawned on him to try this. It has worked like a miracle for him and for me.

Comment:
My stomach gets bloated after I eat certain foods. I took one Beano before eating dinner at a restautant. I began vomiting a couple hours after eating. I thought it might be something in the food. I tried Beano again last night and it happened again. I was very sick and vomited profusely. I will never take it again
