If I want to make sure I don't get D in the morning, when is the best time for me to take Imodium? Right before I go to bed? Or right before I eat dinner?

i use it before bed it works better for me but it can work diffrent from person to person i can tell just by how my stomach reacks to just after eating dinner if it starts making noises after dinner then i might take the imodium then other wise if it dont then i take it before bed so when i wake in the morning i dont have the urge to have to go right upon waking.

I'd do it at bedtime rather than during dinner. You want it to be in place when the diarrhea hits, but it does eventually leave the body, so you don't want to take it too early.K.

I take a small dose before bed and a full dose immediately upon wakening. I still want to have a BM to sort of empty out before leaving the house. If I leave the house without going I can almost bet it’s coming out in an hour or two anyway.
