I was on loparamide [imodium] for like almost 8 yrs. i took 3 or sometimes 4 pills every time i ate.
that's A LOT of pills. Eventually it stopped working for me because I had to take it so much.
Now that i am on Remicade, I am not taking it anymore - not reccomended by Dr.
but i am still going about
10 to 15 times a day.
Don't stop living your life just because you go to the bathroom lots.
I know its tuff... trust me i know. Just watch yourself, hopefully it will work for you and that will be the only thing
you will have to take.
To me Crohns is like a ticking time bomb. You just never know when its going to go off and what will happen
when it does.
wishing u happiness & good health!
praying for a good night's sleep and a happy bottom!! :o]
