Post equalactin?

Has anyone tried equalactin? I haven't been diagnosed by a doctor with IBS, but I know I have something like it. I am not experiencing pain anywhere or anything. Just everytime I have a bowel movement, I have diarrhea. And somedays(2 or 3 days straight sometimes), I don't have bowel movements at all. I don't know what causes this, and I don't have money for a doctor. I want to try equalactin, but I want to know if anyone has ever tried it.

Yes, I have been on Equalactin for quite awhile now. My doctor has told me to take two pills a day, one when I get up and one at night time. For the most part, it does work to keep the water in the colon balanced. It balances your system between loose stools and constipation to help make you more regular. It is a cheap medication and definitely worth the try!
