I don't recall feeling any gastric distress, and it did stop the diarrhea, however, it was horribly constipating to my system. I quit taking it after a week.

Ask your doctor about taking calcium supplements, 500mg works for some people that I have known. Good luck to you, please let us know how you're doing.
It's been 2 years since I had my GB out. My Dr has now started me on Nexium and it's helping with the upper pain. Call me weird but when I have "lower" problems my GERD goes away. When I have "upper" problems, the diarrhea goes away. I'm a mess.
