Comment:
After having my gall bladder removed, I was having problems with frequent diarrhea (up to 5-7 times in a morning.) Now, I am taking this each night and the diarrhea is a thing of the past. One or two times I forgot to take the medicine and was right back in the bathroom the next morning. I no longer forget.

Comment:
I had chronic diarrhea for 11 months before starting this medicine. This medicine began working after just 1 dose. I only gave 4* for ease of use because it is unpleasant tasting & has to be mixed in a beverage. This medicine has been a life saver!

This medicine has changed my life. I would eat a piece of toast and have diarrhea. This is an easy fix.

Comment:
My social life was at a complete stand-still. I could not go anywhere without wearing a depend for safety sake. Now, after taking this medication each morning, I have no more accidents and am able to enjoy life as it should be. Thanks to the medical staff in our hospital.
