Diarrhea Prescription Medications

EnteraGam™ is a prescription medical food product that has been shown in clinical studies to improve GI absorption, immune function and mucosal barrier functioning in the intestine. It acts within the GI tract, going beyond symptom management by targeting multiple factors in IBS-D. In clinical trials, it significantly reduced the number of days with GI-related symptoms; has been used safely up to one year in length; and has no restrictions on length of therapy. LOTRONEX® is a medicine only for some women with severe chronic IBS whose main problem is diarrhea and IBS symptoms have not been helped enough by other treatments. Some patients have developed serious bowel side effects while taking LOTRONEX.
