For those of you who use Imodium....does it cause you to have frequent urination? I've been having a bad IBS flare up the past few days and have been taking Imodium. It helps with the D, but it seems to make me pee a lot. Does this happen to anyone else when you take imodium?

I've been using Immodium on a regular basis for about a year and a half and have never noticed that it causes more frequent urination.

This really isn't a side effect of Immodium. However, it can cause dry mouth, so some people tend to drink more when taking it, which will lead to more urination. : :(

I've noticed that also, so you aren't alone! It is rather annoying, but I suppose I'd rather be going to the bathroom to pee! :(
