    I had a gastric bypass about 7 years ago and started to have bile reflux. I was experiencing episodes of 1-2 times a night. Since beginning this medication (1 gm twice a day) I am having no episodes of bile reflux.

I was living large on Immodium and it got to a point where it wasn't working at all and I just would NOT go ANYwhere!
