I've taken 3 of the 6 prescribed pills so far. The only side affects I've encountered is slight dizziness when standing too quickly, slight yellowing if the white part of my eyes, and neon yellow coloring of the urine on the first day.

I was experienicing chronic diarrhea and stool samples came back negative for any parasites or giardiasis but we decided to treat for them before we did a colonoscopy. I continued to have diarrhea through out treatment but by the second day after my last pill I was back to normal. I'm very grateful to this medication for giving me my life back!!

Started taking the drug for constipation, gas, and bloating that was not responding to any other treatments. I have been prescribed a course of 2 tablets a day for 20 days. So far the side effects are mild. I have bright colored urine, slight yellowing of the whites of my eyes, mild gas, and a dull headache. I am on day 3 of treatment. My bloating has subsided, and constipation seems to be lessened somewhat.

A severe allergic reaction started on day three of taking this medication. Itching, swelling of skin in red patches and hives. Had to contact Doctor and get on Benedryl and predisone, immediately.

This drug didn't work very well for me. Perhaps there was another antibiotic which could have been more effective. Still have diarhea and have to have more tests.

My toddler used this medication twice so far and it works well for her. It does seem to make her a little dizzy though.

I have taken this drug for 3 days now (my Dr prescribed 7 days total)and I am having such severe leg cramps that it is hard to sleep and even walk. The drug seems to be affective expect for the leg cramps that cover both legs from top to bottom.

Comment from: ke, 35-44 Female on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: November 19

I noticed a difference after the first day - near-normal bowel movements. I feel much better after two days of Alinia, and stomach discomfort is gone. Side effect of the meds for me are weird taste in mouth, slightly sleepy after taking the medicine. After the great results, however, I can't complain.
