    Well, Day four on medication, no side effects to speak of, stomach always seems to be rumbling, but that could be change in diet, no cakes or biscuits or anything like that, also eating more fruit...........Del.

    I had a grumbling tummy for about 2 weeks, then it stopped, no further problems, as far as I know!

    Bananas very high in carbs. I made the mistake of eating them every day as part of my 'five a day' until I joined this forum.

    Bananas are essential if you want to replace the potassium you are losing, if you get cramps then drinking Tonic water helps ( quinine) if you don't like bananas I suggest you look up others ways to get it, it's one of the essential minerals for keeping your heart healthy
