At 45 newly diagnosed with IBS, this medication has helped greatly. For me, it really helps control the cramps, although the I do feel bloated more often. It's the taking it 4 times a day that is tough for me to remember, but when the cramping begins I am quickly reminded.

I use this medication for bad cramping and I don't have to take this routinly. I find this medication to be wonderful and it is what gets me through when I have an episode. The pain is so bad I sometimes pass out thankfully this medication makes it better. I get a little dizzy and slower to react but other than that its great.

For the first three days that I took it it seemed to be a Godsend however, the next day (day four) I had a horrible bout of IBS and it has continued with no change ever since.
