If so how are you getting on with it?
I've been taking for nearly3 weeks and am wondering if and when I'll get some results. TMI I know, but I seem to be pooing up to 6 times a day some days - is this ok?

Yes- it really helped me for a while but I took it for longer than you. In my case though it turned out to be far better to realise the cause of my ibs- I was reacting to grains in my diet and cutting them out has been the best cure.
I do think Stmprove is good but could be expensive as I took 3 months of it

I took 3-4 months of it and with a fodmap diet its made a huge improvement in tummy. I did erm have the same problem you did for the first week but then lowered the dosage slightly smile

Have you tried going gluten free. No wheat, oats, rye

I'm actually now into the 11th week of an anti candida plan - I've written about it on this general health thread and my ibs seems to be much improved. I've had candida over many many years and the ibs is a symptom of it -so I decided to try to sort it out as whole package for once and for all.
