I specifically asked my doctor about this (she is always ready to answer questions). She said it is only because they tested it on women and not men or children. So technically I would think you are on your own if you take it and it wasn't okayed for men. And that is kind of scary after the drugs they do test and approve only to find out they are hurting people! Yikes. Also I didn't do so well with it and I definitely recommend caution and go off it the minute you become too loose. (As it has killed people who do not use common sense and go off it when needed). Also as long as I am blabbing, it was only tested for a few weeks dose; that is why doctors prescribe it for a couple months but no more. Hope this helps!

IBS-A for 20 years with terrible bloating and gas. On the diet since April 2004. Remember this from Heather's information pages:
"You absolutely must eat insoluble fiber foods, and as much as safely possible, but within the IBS dietary guidelines. Treat insoluble fiber foods with suitable caution, and you'll be able to enjoy a wide variety of them, in very healthy quantities, without problem." Please eat IF foods!
