Took copies of all info I could find on Lotronex to doctor today--he knew that it has been successful in other parts of world for years. I am older woman whose primary symptom is awful diarrhea--perfect candidate. Took perscription to pharmacy-then can pick it up tomorrow. Will continue fiber & acidophilus but stop all other meds and start the Lotronex to see if it works for me. I know possible side effects so will be alert to possibilities and keep in touch with doctor.

Good Luck with it!!! Be sure and let us know how it works for you. Here's hoping!! By the way, do you know if it's readily available at any pharmacy now?

Thanks mtk. I called my pharmacy and unfortunately, it isn't covered under their "formulary" as yet. I belong to an HMO (Fallon out of Massachusetts). But I intend to get an Rx and have it filled wherever I can. Anything for a chance at relief!!

mmt - What are the side effects? I called my local WalMart and he said he was going to order it and it would be here this week also. I hope to start taking it also. Good luck to you!!

Hi all. I got Lotronex on Monday and so far so good. I haven't experienced any side effects and the D has slowed considerably. I also don't have the crampy feelings either. Maybe this will be my savior. I hope so. Tamme

Good luck to you Lotronex users. Hope it works! My doctor told me it is not yet available and wants me to participate in a medical survey for 8 weeks prior to prescribing Lotronex. Claims it is not available yet. I live in Mass. Can anyone verify this, and is anyone else doing this study (survey) thingie???
