I take Imodium ALL THE TIME!! Like probably once or twice a week. I've never had a doctor tell me not to take it and have only heard people be hesitant about it on this site. If you have Crohn's, your diarrhea PROBABLY is not caused by an infection. Yes, you shouldn't live on Imodium, but seriously, if you're like me and diarrhea is your number one symptom, you can't live without it and the risks are worth it.
