  1. Be respectful of others. Be polite.
  2. Be respectful of the Community. If you see abuse, report it.

  5. Content on theGIconnection does not replace the advice of your physician. If you are experiencing side effects or other adverse events or problems with your medicines please report them to your physician or to the FDA at this link or call 1-800-332-1088.
  6. Do not promote your product. If you have a product that you think is valuable for the Community, please contact the site administrators at to promote it appropriately.
  7. Do not flood the Community with similar posts.
  8. Facilitators’ decisions are final. If you have concerns, please let us know. If you want to debate an issue, do so in private.  Because it is impossible for us to read each post, we reserve the right to delete any message at any time for any reason at all.
  9. Those who don’t play by the rules will be blocked from participation.
