My 16 month old son took this medicine because he had diarrhea that would not go away. We had stool samples and did everything to treat it but his dr prescribed this medicine for him. He took it twice a day for 3 days. and by day 2 he was having solid bowel movements!

Comment:
I noticed a difference after the first day - near-normal bowel movements. I feel much better after two days of Alinia, and stomach discomfort is gone. Side effect of the meds for me are weird taste in mouth, slightly sleepy after taking the medicine. After the great results, however, I can't complain.
