I have been taking immodium AD at least two or three times a week for the last year now. Is that dangerous and what are the dangers?

Hi! I suffer from IBS-D and I take Immodium 3-5 times a week (2 tablets a day) basicially for peace of mind when I go out. I have discussed this with my doctor. His response was "if it works, use it". However, he warned me to try not to use it every day for a long time as my body may build up a resistance to it. I have taken it every day for the past 6 days and what a pleasure it is to 'go' once or twice a day instead of 7-8 and not run to the bathroom immediately after eating.

I tried the tablets and they did not help me at all. I have to use the liquid. I do use the generic though. I can get a bottle of the generic for $2.97 at Walmart. I have used both the Immodium AD brand and generic and they both worked the same for me.
