So I have C. Diff, and I'm *trying* to get to where I can go back to work soon. I am currently having about 8 bowel movements a day. I asked my GI doctor if I could take Imodium with C. Diff, and she said yes... but a family friend who is a physician's assistant says that you should NEVER take Imodium with C. Diff. He said it can cause a perforation. I looked it up online and found conflicting information. What do you think? Is it safe to take Imodium or any kind of similar medicine with C. Diff?
