I went to my new GI doctor today and he wants me on a medication called diosmectite, and he called it Nodia.  I cannot find Nodia anywhere, but I am coming up with a med called Smecta during my researching efforts online.  Has anybody ever heard of this, or know about it, or have you taken it before?  Is there an American med equivalent for it (I'm in Italy)??
Thank You!

I've never heard of it either. However, after Googling it I found that it seems to be a fairly new drug. I found many mentions of recent trials. I also read it's being tested for UC patients. You might want to pop in the Ulcerative Colitis board and see if anyone there has heard of it.
Good luck! And please keep us posted.
