right now im off crohns meds to get a baseline so my doc gave me clidinium, levisin and lomotil to manage the symptoms. has anyone ever taken either of these? what exactly do they do? does it control inflammation or just the contractions in the bowel?
ive just never heard of clidinium and was wondering if anyone has any experience.
thanks

Levsin helps slow cramping, and lomotil is to stop diarrhea. I don't know what clidinium is. I hope you are doing ok

gumby44 is correct about the Levsin and Immodium. Clidinium is used for the cramps too but also is used for ulcers. Its also given to people with IBS. I actually use the Librax (Clidinium0 occaisionally.

thanks :)
