I've used Slippery Elm and I've thought it really helped - but the only thing is, it needs to be taken several hours before and after meds. Since I take meds (Asacol) four times a day. if I forget to take to take S. Elm at the opportune moment, I'm nervous about
taking it too close to my meds and my meds just sliding through without absorption.
But.... I have liked Slippery Elm. Have not tried Marshmallow.
