ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? SORRY I AM ANGRY BECAUSE THESE DOCTORS ARE MAKING ME SO MAD. WHY DO I KNOW MORE THAN THEM SHEEEEEESH! Sorry for the caps! Anyway someone asked this earlier - their doctor had prescribed it for IBS-A. Firstly it should NEVER EVER be prescribed for someone with diarrhea AT ALL. It is for constipation predominant people only, and has only been proven to work in women. It is not approved for men as studies have not been conducted to test it on men yet.

But anyway, the FDA's warning was that Zelnorm can cause severe diarrhea - and thats for people who may already have SEVERE C!!! I cannot believe how inept so many doctors seem to be...I wonder if they are truly clueless or just want to prescribe medicine for the sake of it???? argh!!

Anyway this is the warning ZELNORM WARNING!!!

Also here is a blurb from the zelnorm.com site:
Why can men not take Zelnorm?
Zelnorm received FDA approval based on the results of two clinical studies, each lasting 12 weeks in duration. Both studies involved primarily women patients.

Browse the site, search for past posts. Their are some great ideas for reducing the exact symptoms you have....and keep up the diet
