I'm really surprised they give you perc's to control the D. They're kinda strong just to use to control D, and they don't stop the spasming and take awhile to work.
My gastro said here they use 3 things for D
first line of defense is lomotil- I already built tolerance to that
then imodium (loperamide) Have you tolerance to that too?
maybe find out how many codeine it'll take daily to firm up your stool..and then divide and take them when you're home- then you won't have to feel stoned at work.
i have a colostomy and it has its perks and disadvantages..mine was temp and one thing they didn't tell me is i'd still have to run to the bathroom several times a day (all blood and mucous) it happens about
half of the time that I am going into the pouch.. my colon must be really inflamed.
