    I couldn't go out the house before and was living off immodium but I haven't had to take any since starting.this medication. Because it has to be dissolved in water it is a pain to take when I'm out but otherwise it works ok. Still not perfect but much better!

    Begore I took this drug I was not able to leave my house due to immediate diarrhea. No at least I am able to leave the house and work. I still have diarrhea but I can make it to the bathroom. I know some people can not tolerate the taste, but I have no problem at all.
