Has anyone ever used this???? How were your results? I was just prescribed this and Symax but I stopped the Symax cause I think it made me sick, as I spent the whole weekend vomiting with a fever. I'm also bleeding again.

After many months of trying other meds, I tried this. It worked very well and ended the flare, basically. It seemed to reach the parts that other medicines could not reach ! yeah
(Probably because most of my inflammation seems to be very low down in my gut, at the last bend of the gut.)
It did take about a month to really work if I recall correctly, certainly it took a week or two to begin. By that time I had been flaring for the best part of eighteen months though, so it was bound to take a while.
Hope it works for you ! wink

the symax does not make much sense to me...if your are given lomotil it is the Diphenoxylate in lomotil not the atropine that is the useful opioid in slowing the bowel. Symax seems to be a similar drug to atropine in lomotil...however atropine is added to diphenoxylate when making lomotil to discourage the abuse of the opioid in lomotil. Thus symax alone is questionable ...what was symax prescribed for? Have you ever tried lomotil?
On the other part of the question..I never tried the foam so i dont know
