I have a question.Does anyone know which iodium is the strongest? I had a terrible flare up yesterday,and ended up taking some anti-diaharea tables, off brand. Tody I went to the drugstore, two of them and asked two different pharmastists which was the strogest imodium on the shelf and both of them told methey are all the sme. I asked about th off brand,and they said the same. I hae a problem agreeing withtht, as then why is there so many different kinds. i want th strongest. Can someone help me,and where do you get yours fromthanks so mucDeeDee

They are all about the same dosage-wise. I have used off brand for years with much success. And as far as Imodium "Multi Symptom" I believe the only added ingredient is an anti-gas agent and I have used those off label as well with much success. Unless one is particularly sensitive.. I doubt there is much difference between them & brand name. I haven't found any difference anyway.. well.... other than alot more money left in my pocket.

Dee I don't wait for the D to start before I take it. That would be too late and I know I would just waste the imodium! I need to take it with meals to prevent D. And consequently I think I end up needing less.

I mean maybe you might do ok with just using Calcium Carbonate daily and waiting to take the imodium if or when the D flares up. See Linda's Calcium Thread thumbtacked to the top of this Forum.
