    The pill does work the first time you take it, but I am losing weight like crazy. I went from 110 to 102 in the last two weeks. My stools have been very soft the last few days. I am also in abnormal pain that lasts until the afternoon.

    Comment:
    I suffer from constipation and since no one can really figure it out I've been labelled with IBS-C. A Doctor offered me this drug to try and see if it helped. I have to agree with a lot of the other negative reviews. It's left me feeling worse!! Before this I was at least going regularly once a day (although straining). Now; I don't know.
