Hi all, spent my whole life (35) being acutely affected by IBS-d and today I have started to try and take control. I have read a lot about how calcium carbonate can help today. I have bought the Boots Indigestion Relief tabs (in red box) as they are cheap and have 500mg. I am thinking I start by taking a couple a day (with food?) and build up to three (is that enough?) and see if that helps. I don't think they have magnesium in them so that's ok isn't it? Or not? Thanks in advance!

i tried calcium carbonate, but it did me no good.

i reckon there is no harm in trying it to control diarrhea. 

Many persons have benefited from this medication, 

Preferably take it just after taking meals.

Thanks for the reply but can anyone help further? I can't tell how much magnesium is in the Boots indigestion tabs and worrying it is making worse. I've looked for the tabs ( i don't mind paying) but can't work out which i should be buying, there seems to be loads. Any advice on which and where to buy from? Had very bad say and need to take action.
