KAOPECTATE TABLETS WITH ATTAPULGITE WORKED WELL WITHOUT CAUSING DROWSINESS AS IMMODIUM AD DOES AND IS MORE EFFECTIVE THAN PEPTO BISMOL. AS A PHARMACIST I LIKED THE FACT THAT IT COULD BE SAFELY USED WHEN FOOD POISONING MIGHT BE SUSPECTED DUE TO ITS ABILITY TO ADSORB BACTERIAL TOXINS. I PERSONALLY WOULD RECOMMEND THIS AS A SAFE AND EFFECTIVE TREATMENT.

How can this company be so negligent on the instruction of the use of its product?? The "How to Use" instruction was on the INSIDE of the backlabel. In other words, I have to PEEL OFF the back label to be able to read how to use it. NOT only that, the directions were simply: "shake well before using it. Adults and children 12 years and older take 30 ml or 2 tablespoon." THAT WAS IT!!! How man...

I was having sulphur burps and diarrhea for a few days. I had been told about this medicine from a friend of mine. Sulphur burps are gone and no more diarrhea.

The new Kaopectate (without the attapulgite) does not work for me, whatsoever. I don't even bother to buy it. I really can't find anything else on the market that DOES work. I genuinely wish they would bring back the old formulation. When I need it, I really need it, and nothing else works for me.
