  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...
