Frequent bowel movements. Taking Darolac. Can I continue to take it everyday?

I am having bowel movements about 5 or 6 times everyday and it is hard for me to do ordinary things like going for a awalk etc for fear hat I will have to go to the bathroom. I have started taking Darolac before meals every morning and my bowel movements have been reduced to 2 times per day. I feel much better now. Can I continue to take it everyday?

Thanks for asking.

Darolac is used to treat diarrhea, but it is just a combination of Probiotics, so it hasn't been tested for side effects, as is done with actual drugs.

I will advise you not to take the medicine for prolonged period of time as long term side effects are not known.
