We’ve all experienced it: excessive stress, something we ate - any number of causes, actually - can get our bowels a bit testy. The result can be uncomfortable, and sometimes more than a little embarrassing (like when it happens at work, right: just as you’re preparing to make that big presentation in front of the board of directors). It’s the “D” word: diarrhea, and its onset doesn’t have to spell doom to your work day. GoodSense Anti-Diarrheal contains 2 mg of loperamide hydrochloride in each tablet to still the churning. Compare that to the active ingredient found in Imodium A-D, this store brand can deliver the same assist in quieting your agitated bowels as the brand name, but costs less. Of course, be sure to drink plenty of clear fluids to guard against dehydration during a bout of diarrhea. Stay calm and focus on your board meeting. Don’t get your bowels in an uproar; take GoodSense Anti-Diarrheal.
