well when I was taking immodium I would take 2 and it would take up to 2hrs to work but then I would be good for a day or two. Like you I would have to take a day or two off if I took it a few day in a row because it would make my stomach cramp and I ended up in D anyways. Now I take lomotil the generic kind. I take 2 in the morning and am good all day. The next morning I will have a bowel movement or 2 then I will take my next 2 and within 20 minutes I'm good to go. Now if I eat something that I shouldn't then I will have a bowel movement but it will be without the urgency. So for me lomotil works better even though I have to take it everyday. It really takes away the urgency for me. I havent used immodium in so long but I figured I could switch between the two every once in a while so that my body doesn't get use to either one. So far though I have been doing great on lomotil and i have been taking it everyday since June of 09.
