  • 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.
