  1. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I have taken Imodium/Loperamide fairly successfully for many years. I have to take it daily, 2 tablets in the morning and 2 at night, at the regular dosage of 2 mg a tablet. I simply would not be able to function without it. In a way it is a life saver for me. I find I still have terrifying...
  2. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I swear if I poop one more time, you're all going to hear me scream - even those of you far away. Surely not everyone in this world has to have a bowel movement EVERY DAMN TIME they go to the bathroom. Does everyone in the world have to wipe their butts so much it's almost always bleeding...
  3. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Whenever I am having an IBS episode, there are times when I get cramping in my lower middle abdomen (hypogastric region) THAT IS SO SEVERE IT MAKES ME CRY AND SCREAM OUT IN AGONY. I have a relatively high pain tolerance but there has been times where the pain is so severe I feel like Im going to...
  4. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hello comrades! This is my first topic. I didn't find any topic about that so I'm opening one. I've been dealing with IBS for almost 5 years (I'm 21 now), but I was only diagnosticade with IBS last year. I've been taking Imodium 2 pills (4mg) per day and it's totally helpful but sometimes It's...
  5. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    It's either I was in more pain without some of these meds or confused/lacking concentration with less pain: http://www.healthcommunities.com/digestive-disorders/anticholinergic-side-effects_jhmwp.shtml

  7. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi All, I just found this place, and a search was... daunting. If this has been answered, please point me there. Has anyone found a good cheap source on IMODIUM COMPLETE? Generic (or basic name brand) is great for stopping the diarrhea but it leaves in in incredible pain. Almost worse than if...
  8. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hello! First time posting, need some opinions on what to do. Have been to the GI doctor previously, no allergies, she told me I needed to see a therapist because it's all due to anxiety. Have been taking Imodium frequently, it helps me when I have to work/drive. Also on Prozac and xanax for...
  9. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I'm hoping you can help me. Next week I'm having my first surgery, a hysterectomy because of endometriosis, and I'm super anxious about it. This, of course, sets off my IBS-D, which makes me more anxious, which makes the IBS worse, etc. I've been having IBS flairs every other day since I...
  10. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I am having a bad IBS flare, and am currently taking Colestid and Imodium daily. I understand these bile acid sequestrants can absorb other medications, so I wanted to know whether I can take it at the same time as Imodium (being that it seems to act locally rather than systemically). I asked...
  11. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I had been taking one Bentyl and two Imodium before going to work at about 11:30 a.m. because I would frequently get severe cramping and diarrhea around 1:00 or 2:00 p.m. As I don't work every day, I only took them on the days I work - about 4 days on average. It had been working well until a...
  12. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi, I have had IBS-D for a few years. I have a problem where I have two consecutive bowel movements in the morning within an hour of each other. I have one urgent bowel movement right when I wake up in the morning. Then about an hour later, I have another urgent bowel movement. The second...
  13. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I'm 20 and work Nights and suffer badly with IBS-D. I've had it under control by taking imodium every other day but tonight I was told to go home as I had to keep running to the toilet and had serious pain. I ended up in tears as I was so embarrassed and told my Team leader that I suffer with...
  14. General Discussion
    Hello, I'm 15 years old and I have IBS-D, more specifically psychologically induced ibs, aka I can control my bowels with my mind (cool right?) But anyway, it's been happening since the fifth grade, every morning when I wake up for school I automatically think about it, therefore causing it...
  15. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi there The doctor's had me on a low FODMAP diet for the past few months to try and help my gut (often needing the toilet with absolutely no warning, generally IBS-D, stomach cramp etc) A few weeks ago he prescribed me imodium and told me that when my gut had pretty much decided on...
  16. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi everyone! Apologies for the long post, but I feel I should be somewhat exhaustive given the particular accident I went through. A little background information first: I'm a 29-year-old male who has had what is believed to be IBS-D for about 14/15years. Lots of doctor/gastroenterologist...
  17. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hello! My doctor just prescribed me Librax today for my IBS-D symptoms, and while I am quite excited to try it out, I am worried with the long list of interactions. Mainly, those concerning alcohol, caffeine, and Imodium. It says to avoid or try to limit the usage of these things when taking...
  18. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Since starting school after the half term my ibs has been the worst it's ever been, I'm taking loads of Imodium and still having panic attacks in lessons and not managing to stay through the whole of any lessons. It's ruining my education. I have noticed that although Imodium is stopping my...
  19. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi everyone, I have had chronic loose stool/diarrhea problems for several years now. I have been on imodium since January but I am now finding that it is not working properly anymore despite taking 4 tablets a day (3 with breakfast and 1 with dinner) when I used to take just 2 a day (1 with...
  20. Over-the-Counter (OTC) Treatments
    Hey all, I've been reading this forum for a while, but I've only just made an account. Anyway, I was diagnosed with IBS-D about a year ago, during my last year of high school (which was incredibly stressful due to the IBS more than the actual schooling) and somehow I managed to get through the...
