    Iâ??ve been taking 1 sachet a night before eating for a month or so now after being diagnosed with Lymphocytic Colitis. I was on steroid medication for 2 mths prior but still having an urgency to run to the toilet several times a day.

    I have been taking one sachet each day for 6 months. Before taking this medication I would constantly need the toilet and found it impossible to travel anywhere. I was diagnosed with Ibs and had to take Imodium most days. What a difference this medication has made no more embarrassing accidents.I'm able to live a normal life.
