Advice & Tips: First, I hate taking pills, but I hate the effects of IBS far more. This medication has allowed me to live a much more normal life. Without it, many, many times I would not be able to even go outside because of diarhea. I have had to cancel doctor visits and other important activities just because I didn't dare leave my home. The unexpected benefit is that it helps me feel more secure because I don't have to dash to the nearest restroom. Only those of us who suffer from the pain and unpredictablility of this disease can really understand how important this medicine is.
Side effects: constipation
