Hi,lets start out with the name, With the Colestid (colestipol hydrochloride for oral suspension) the problem is solved.Look my wife and I have been taking this stuff for 12 years and we haven't had a bit of a problem since.Everyone we tell about it, who takes it. Says there problem is gone also.Now the thing is, you have to take it every morning. This was made for people with cholesterol problems, but it also solves IBS-D too.George

It comes Unflavored without Citrus also, it has helped many more then it has hurt. Only by taking it can you tell if it will work. It also comes in 1mg Tablets also. It didn't work for you because your on the Rare side. My friend had TURBO D's and had lived with it for 20 years, after I gave him (1) packet of it. He went out and did something he was never able to do, he had a big Sub Sandwitch and a big smile on his face.It's not for everyone, but it works for many!George
