Hi,

I am looking for people with IBS and a constant "D" who take Imodium often or every day over some time
to share experiences (e.g. Does it work if I take it daily over some time or will I have to take more and
more of it, does it effect my body in a bad way etc.).

I had 5 years ago an infection with some salmonella bacteria which caused an IBS with a
constant "D" over the last 5 years. My M.D. has ruled out all other causes and said it to be an IBS.
I tried many things to stop the "D" inclusive the normal IBS-remedys, fiber, autogenic trainig, acupuncture
and so on and so on. My health improved a little bit because of this but I still have to fight "D" every day.

The only thing that worked was imodium. I take it in the job and in my private life if I have to go
somewhere or to do something where no restroom ist availible.

I would like to take it around the clock and every day to take my life back to normal and I would like to talk to
people who have the same problem und who have experiences with imodium and could give me advice
about problems and dangers.

My M.D. couldnt give me Information about using Imodium in the long run, so I am seeking for
Information here.

best regards

Matt
