Hello fellow canadians.Do any of you know whether it's possible to get a prescription for imodium even though it's available otc? I'd sure like to be able to write it off as a tax deduction which I can't do buying it over the counter. The pharmacist said that for special conditions (she mentioned cancer) patients can get it prescribed but she didn't seem to think IBS counted. Anyone have any knowledge about whether IBS counts as a special "prescribable" condition?FYI: I did find out though, after all these years of buying the packages, that my pharmacist will dispense "bulk" quantities (no pun intended) of imodium which cost less per tablet than the packaged version. That's nice to learn at least.
