Immodium-induced diahrrea

185 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  m_m_forth
I take immodium occasionally, usually as a preventative measure when I have to teach or something. I was wondering now if taking it in this way had actually caused my diahrrhea. Like maybe this is how my body compensates. Can anyone relate?It's just that my IBS has become the D type since I started this prevention thing. I guess the real way to know is to stop altogether, but I don't think I have the courage.

Hi!I use imodium as well, but I don't depend on it. I only use it when I know I have to be somewhere, and need to feel somewhat confident that nothing will happen. I have never had cause my D. It will bind me up, and then I have deal with that. I have IBS for 10yrs. Hope you will be OKTake Care
Hi PamPam,Thanks for the response. My D happens after the plugged-up phase. It's like when it wears off it really wears off (just a little too far in one direction), like late the next day or the day after that. Weird. I'm searching for clues. How could my IBS change so abruptly after 8 years???
