You two must have been reading my mind. I had just read that same post and even marked the name down to research when I saw this message. I wait anxiously to hear what this medication is supposed to do. Yea, Jenjen, it's probably an immodium-like med. But, hope springs eternal as we all search frantically for some help.

Something I read said it was the same asShaman Normal Stool Formula, which isn'tlike Imodium. It is supposed to normalizeyour stool. I tried the NSF & it didn'thelp me, but I'd take all the free samplesI could.

I posted the same question not long ago, but it somehow got lost amongst all the messages. Anyhow, I am anxiously waiting for some input on someone who has used this and if they've had any success. I've just received a free sample in the mail, so I plan on taking a try with it to see if it helps me any. I'll be sure to keep you all posted and let you know how it goes.

Well I have been on it for a week. I take two tablets a day along with Colestid (a binder) and one Allegra a day. I have seen an improvement, not perfect, but a definite improvement. Unfortunately when I start feeling pretty good I eat something I shouldn't and BAM! It is definitely worth keeping in the arsenal. Cost seems to be about a buck a pill but I would pay a thousand bucks a month to be rid of this ####!Monte
