Well, it's back to work for me on Friday. I work as an instructional aide at an elementary school. I really like what I do, but already and for the past week I've been stressed, and have had awful anxiety. I know it's because I'm afraid I'll have a major "D" attack. I am taking Caltrate Plus and Levsin. I haven't taken any Immodium for a week and thought I was doing real good, but I went out to breakfast with my mom this morning and had biscuits and gravy which I never have. Just thought it sounded good. I told my mom how I was doing so well and wouldn't you know it, I had an attack tonight. I guess I'm stuck taking the Immodium, I'm so afraid not to. Do any of you have to take it on a regular basis? I wish I didn't have to, but I don't know what else to do, except not eat the whole school year. Somehow I don't think that is an option.

My Gastro told me I could take it every day. He even suggested that I take one or 2 when I get up in the morning if I know I will not be able to eat 'proper' foods. I bounce between Imodium AD and Lomotil, which is another anti D med (RX) that works a little faster.I hope this helps. if you need more info, ask your doc or your Pharmacist.
