    I was told by my doctor to take 4 times a day because the drug has to stay in your system at all times. After reading some reviews I'm unsure if I should take 4 a day before meals an one at bedtime. They are the directions I was given. Any advice?? I had to fill in the stars which are N/A to me yet. So disregard for now. Thanks, Lisa

    I was diaognosed with IBS-D 3 years ago. I only use this medication when I absolutely need it. I just finished a 10 day course of amoxicillin a couple of days ago. That antibiotic messed me up terribly. My IBS has kicked into full gear. Thank God I have this medication on hand - and they are still potent enough to take care of the pain, nausea and diarrhea. IBS sucks big time. But this medic ... Show Full Comment

    i've had IBS-D for almost ten years now, and for the longest time i only dealt with it by taking over-the-counter anti-diarrheal medication, which steadily became less effective the longer i took it. my GI doc prescribed me this and i only take it when i have severe flare-ups or extreme abdominal pain. it definitely helps with the diarrhea and it mostly deals with the abdominal discomfort too. ...

    I started taking it when I was hospitalized for diverticulitis. I had to have surgery due to having 2 abcesses in my colon. I was in there for 2 weeks due to severe infection. I take it 4 times a day as directed by my doctor. I am still experiencing the constipation and am very bloated most of the time. I'm not sure it is that effective with me. I'll give it more time though.
