My doctor recommended immodium to me and I usually only have to take 1 every few days. If I get the gurgles and "d" three times in a row than I'll take that and some GasX and dicyclomine. Than I'm usually fine for several days. In fact I won't have a bm for at least 48 hours. But start feeling bloated by then. I jump back and forth between regular BM's and "D" every few days. I have found out if I eat a salad for lunch I'm pretty sure I'll be spending the afternoon in the bathroom.
