Welcome to Healing Well :)
Wow, thats very interesting... I have never heard of having to drink alcohol in order to eat. And that it makes your D go away. I have always had the exact opposite with vodka (makes me run for the toilet the next morning with D) although I can tolerate vodka stomachwise more than any other liquor just not intestine wise I guess.
You sound like you have a very severe case of IBS-D since you take both Lomotil and Imodium. Am curious how many times do you have D without the meds and how many times with the meds? I hope you keep posting and I'm sure you'll get more reactions to your post since we all tend to lean the opposite way with alcohol and symptoms.
