My GP prescribed Imodium a couple of weeks ago and suggested I start by taking 2 tablets morning and evening. On Day 2 I was very excited because (as I posted here) I had my first formed bm in living memory. However, by day 4 I was becoming horribly constipated. I stopped taking them for a few days, and then of course the inevitable happened. I've started taking them again but have cut down the dose to 1 tablet twice a day. The problem is that even that much seems to be making me constipated.My GP gave me no guidance (she admitted that she'd never treated anyone with IBS before) and so I feel as though I'm stumbling around in the dark here. In the past, when I've taken Imodium once the d has started, it's been too late and hasn't really controlled it. But it seems that taking it like this is proving too much. I know that many of you here take Imodium and I'd be grateful for your thoughts.
