Works as intended
I have been prescribed this medication to help treat Coronary Artery Disease and it has helped with controlling my disease with other medications. It was a last resort for treatment and I am glad my cardiologist made the recommendation. It does cause diarrhea but I knew this in advance so weight loss was a benefit to my treatment.
