This medicine has helped tremendously. Before it, I had to be close to a bathroom after I ate. Wish I had known about this sooner. I do not like the taste at all, but have found it easier to mix with milk (usually skim milk) and sometimes add a dab of caramel syrup and mix completely.

I have had IBS since I was 10, but haven't dealt with uncontrolable diarrhea until 3 yrs after my gallbladder was removed. I have been battling this for 1.5 yrs and so frustrated.

This medication has changed my life. After having my gallbladder removed, I suffered from SEVERE diarrhea, often 6-8 times a day. I felt like I couldn't even go to the grocery store.

But well worth it for the benefits ... Show Full Comment

I just started taking this 3 weeks and it helps somewhat so taking Kaopectate also. Hope for better results. I have mild gas but terrible stomach bloating to the point I can't get clothes on. I don't know if this is a common side effect, I read nothing about this.
