Hello all.
I could eat whatever I wanted the first 2 months, but now I have the big D.
My question is how many imodium can I take in 24 hours as it says on the box not more than 6 a day.

You can take 8.

If imodium doesn't help you might ask for an Rx of Lomotil.

We were also told 8. Lomotil does work better for some but my son actually found that, for him, imodium works better.
