It is important to understand that pills is not a panacea and certainly not a drug that you can assign to yourself. In any case, if you have any problems with digestion, pain in the stomach or intestines, heartburn, and etc, you must undergo a complete gastrointestinal examination, which will help to identify the causes of the disease. Then the specialist will prescribe You the treatment. At this stage you can ask the attending physician what he thinks about the use of this drug. If this tool is displayed to You, the gastroenterologist, certainly, assign it.
