I am new to HealingWell.com and I am receiving comfort by reading these posts. I have had D now for 6 years. I took generic Imodium to allow me to funtion somewhat each day. (20mg per day). I finally started to go to a Gi Doc a year ago to find out what is going on.
I have had a colonoscopy which came up normal. I have had a endoscopy which came up normal. They are trying flagyl to see if I have some bacteria. The reason why is I have not had any antibiotics for a very long time. I took the first round of Flagyl 1500mn a day for ten days. Started feeling better stopped taking Imodium. Then it got worse. The Doc said that I should do another round of flagyl 10 day round because the first round might not have killed the closed spores. I have one more day left. Correct me if I am wrong but flagyl can cause D?
I have been reading about taking calcium to help with the D. So I started taking that yesterday. Today I took my flagyl and a calcium at lunch and I had severe D.
Wondering if taking those two so close can cause that and if anyone has other tips.
