I too get severe diarrhea after using 2-3 packets. I have 2 cups of coffee and use 1 packet for each cup and then 1 packet on some cereal. I use the Walmart Brand. Glad I am not alone!

Comment:
I had Stevia in a whey based powdered protein drink which was clearly marked "No Sugar or Sugar Substitute Added"!
