my doctor very recently put me on 2mg tablets 45 mins before each meal. I have very bad diharreah everytime I eat. Do these tablets take a few times taking them to start working? Or should I be noticing a difference as soon as a week taking them?

It gave me diarreah every day. Then I took Imodium to stop the diarreah. Then I was constipated. It was a vicious circle. I just remembered taking extra Ranitidine to calm my stomach when I was on a course of steroids. It worked!! I am back to a normal stomach again!! Am I OK doing this long term???
