Lomotil works wonders for me. I used to take up to 5 Lomotils, but they did me absolutely no good during my attacks. My attacks are so severe, I get the sweating, nausea, shaking, fainting, weakness, etc. I now take up to 3 Lomotils with a Donatol for my attacks and they help tremendously. The only downside is the tolerance issue. I've been on a bad bout for over a month and haven't been able to kick it. Having to take the Lomotil every day has built up my tolerance, and now 3 don't always take care of an attack completely. My doctor has no trouble prescribing it for me. I've been on it for over a year, and he said that if it's working, than that's what we'll stick with.Good luck!
