Margaret on Sep, 14, 2013:
I am an 83 yr. old female just starting to take
Xaltera for irregular heart beat and had stomach
cramps and diarrhea with my first pill. Would taking Pepto Bismal or Omodium with the pill help
with the problem or will that cause further
medical problems. With this pill, I don't have
to check my blood frequently. Any other suggestions? Thks.
