Does Beano have side effects I took 2 tablets before eating

This answer was rated:

Does Beano have side effects? I took 2 tablets before eating dinner consisting of chili over linguini and less than an hour later experienced severe abdominal cramping and diarrhea. Is this normal for some people?

Dear Wickedwitch:


Thank you for this opportunity to answer your question. Beano does have some side effects that involve the gastrointestinal tract. These include stomach discomfort, cramping, dyspepsia, abdominal pain, fatigue, and chest pain. Yep, sounds like you had some side effects of Beano.
