Comment:
I am taking this medication due to chronic diarrhea caused by my gall bladder removal. It truly has changed my life! I no longer have to be near a bathroon 24/7. I have only had one reoccurance of diarrhea and that was due to my missing my dose the day before. I was, however, in the bathroom most of the day. Therefore, I would highly recommend not missing a dose.

I started using this for chronic diarrhea after I had my gallbladder removed 2 years ago. It has been effective for stopping my diarrhea. I do experience more constipation now that I am on this medication.

i was prescribed this medication from my gastrointerologist for severe diarrhea associated with irritable bowel syndrome because nothing else has worked. it usually works well but the granules are like sand in your mouth-not very tasty.
