Roughage is all but solving my D problem and seemed until last night to have stopped me needing the anti-spasmodic prescribed-spasmonil (alverine citrate). I did think at one point that Immodium worked better but once D stopped assumed that any tummy discomfort should be dealt with by Spasmonal. What I am wondering is if anyone has an opinion on which works best. Am I incorrect to choose Spasmonal over Immodium because the D has eased up? I assume Spasmonal is stronger because it was prescribed by the Dr, also I thought Immodium was only for D. I ask this because I have wondered before whether the Spasmonal gives me more stomach discomfort. I take it because I feel the spasms start (of course they may not develop but who wants to wait and see)and because they usually accompany that awful feeling of needing to go (went 6 times yesterday), but then I get a different kind of stomach discomfort - any help/info appreciated.
