View Full Version : New over the counter med for IBS

A few weeks ago I saw a television commercial for a new over-the-counter medicine for IBS. I failed to catch the name and haven't seen it in any of the drugstores. Has anyone else heard of it?

You might have seen a commercial for Equalactin, it's a chewable pill that actually does work for IBS symptoms. Only drawback is that it's very expensive, about $4 a box, you get 24 tablets and you have to take 3 w/every meal for maximum benefits. I tried taking 1 or 2 and it ended up being the same results if I just ate right. My advice is save your money and eat right b/c it doesn't make all that much of a difference.
