When I take Imodium or Lomotil I find that it makes my symptoms worse later on. I really try not to take either of them after noticing this but sometimes when I have somewhere to be I have no choice. For instance Friday night we had dinner plans with people from hubs work so I took some. I had more pain and had to go more than usual Saturday morning.
