Works fast: it works fast ,actually the dose is 10-20 mg before each meal, I will definitely start with 10 mg if this the first time user, to make sure there is no side effect. work much better with IBS associated with loose BM. adjusting diet, eat multiple small meals, avoid food that usually caused problems, and that based on each individual separately, exercise, and meditation, and stress management.
