  1. My dr. gave me some, but boy oh boy DIAREHA big time. Does it stop once your body gets used ot it? I am afraid to leave the house.

    when it first came out. It didn't work for me then & doesn't work for me now.

    Sorry I couldn't help answer your Q's since it never worked one bit for me. I'd be so happy to have a bout of the big D right now!

    Didn't work for my daughter. I never tried it. What worked great and still does for both of us is "Natural Calm" magnesium. I forget the name of the company, but they're in Calif. and some health food stores carry it. Some people have done well on natural aloe. Good luck!

    I've been taking it for 3 years now. I'm trying to wean myself off it as it works & it doesn't work as my digestive system certainly has a mind of its own.

    I'm hoping to reduce my costs for my meds, but this is a hard place to pinch pennies. I've been impacted 2xs & had surgery for a fissure so I'm always concerned about any indications toward constipation or diarrhea.

    Increased fiber was terrible for me & made things much worse.

    but it isn't covered in Manitoba by Pharmacare, so I can't afford it! I am hoping that will change sometime, as it isn't that new of a drug. I have tried some samples, and it didn't really do anything, but I am wondering if for some people it just takes longer to start to work?
  6. eating ginger? Can you use the canned spice? And how?

    If you get in touch with the drug company that makes Zelnorm and your doctor gives a letter stating that you NEED this medicine then they will give it to for free. Find their web site and look on there for something about it. Then you can print out the necessary papers and have your doc fill them out. Alot of drug companies do this now. Good Luck

    Zelnorm works great for me. I have never been so regular in my entire life. I had IBS very bad. No constipation or diareha now.
