Taking the regular met. and was doing well, but after three months I have to admit that the gastric issue is starting to be a problem. Maybe related – maybe not? I haven’t had a solid BM in a few weeks and have several BM’s daily – loose and my farts smell like rotten eggs. Needless to say I have been backsliding on my diet and drinking a few beers in the southern summer heat. Does the XR help with these problems? And has anyone else had the stinky fart issue. I can’t seem to tolerate my own farts anymore – help!?!
