i went to both my Drs. GI and reg. care,both of them will not be prescribing Lotronex. Too much paper work and do not want the responsibilty that goes with this. My GI said he never heard of going through all that wil any other drug, he said when it will be prescribed like any other drug , he will do it.-- Many say got to another DR.--well they want you to get all the testing all over again, many drs. will not take info. from previous test form other drs.----No way am I going to have another colonoscopy just to get a pill.This was all just a bunch of hoopla, they knew that if Lotronex came , we would have a hard time getting it anyway. Back to the crates of Imodium, i wonder how much I am harming my health by gobbling all the Imodium, which by the way j does not work all the time!!!
