Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected, recommended for all. :-) Product works quickly for those with a bad diarrhoea problem. This has literally put a stop to my annoying troubles within 6-8 hours of taking the 3rd tablet in the time frame mentioned. I still had to go a couple times upon the first 2 tabs and thought ‘this isn’t working’, due to how the body was feeling with the uneasiness, but once bedtime hit, I felt more relaxed, and by next morning was much happier. I recommend this item to all, just don’t ‘eat like lollies’ people, as the tabs are working, even when you think they’re not. :-) A great product to have on hand for when this issue comes up again.
