I was on Immodium 8x a day when my Crohn's was active. I still take it before work as a crutch. I would take it with breakfast, lunch, dinner, then right before bed (hoping it would help my mornings go just a little smoother).
I still had BM's so that wasn't an issue. Sometimes it would cause me to have loose BM right after I took it and then it would kick in. I think that was just me though...
I don't know the answer to the "CDAI question" question. Hope that helps a little!
Hope your well soon! ((((HUGS))) and prayers!
I just recently started taking immodium due to a difficult boss. I was scared I would be constipated. Funny huh? I took two extra strength after my first loose bm and I didn't go until the next day and I was normal (for me) again. It actually made it slightly more solid than usual. I like to keep some at work just in case. I don't take it daily. Only when my bum is getting sore or I am not in the mood to be in the bathroom 15 times a day.
I hope this helps.
