Thanks everyone for your replies. I was just worried that I am putting myself at risk for all of these serious side effects with no positive results... but now after reading all of your responses, I will definitely give it at least to the 3rd or 4th treatment. I was just reading all of these other posts about
how people felt great instantly, I was thinking to myself, wow, obviously it's not working for me... but everyone's different, so I will wait it out.
Still having the diarrhea, but strangely only in the morning 3-10 times. Then in the evening and at night, nothing. It's not anything I am eating, since I have been switching it up to test it, and even went back to my bandaid (ensure) for a while to see what would happen, and still... diarrhea in the morning...
