Fowler's Suspension is a trusted, fast and effective anti-diarrheal containing activated attapulgite.
Attapulgite is an oral, nonabsorbed medication that is used in the management of diarrhea. It works by adsorbing (binding) large numbers of bacteria and toxins and reducing the loss of water. Attapulgite reduces the number of bowel movements, improves the consistency of loose or watery stools, and relieves the gastrointestinal cramping that often is associated with diarrhea.

I am reviewing simply because I was so happy to find this on the Well.ca website. So many pharmacies have discontinued it for fancier pharma. This has worked well for me since I was a small child. No doubt it will work well next time I need it. Have introduced it to my grandchildren. It solved their tummy cramps and diarrhea with just two doses.

I have looked for Fowlers for a number of years. It is the BEST diarrhea medication I have ever come across. Thirty-five years ago my father was suffering with Colitis, he had seen several Doctors over a two year period, been prescribed several medications of which none of them worked. When I went home to see him, I purchased and gave him Fowlers Extract of Wild Strawbey and it cured his diarrhea in a matter of days, and he was never bothered with Colitis again.
