For Diarrhea “I was tappering off of both MS Contin and Percocet and developed diarrhea. I started taking Imodiun and started itching and a rash. It did help the diarrhea but I am one of the people that had a reaction to this medication, unfortunately. I also had cramping, and sweating as well as lightheadedness.”

For Diarrhea “I have had IBS-D most of my life. Until Imodium came along, I had to stay home… I use the Imodium Multi-Symptom more often than the Imodium AD for one specific reason – the ease of accessing the pill. The packaging for the AD is absolutely, beyond a doubt one of the dumbest every conceived! Definitely not something you can have handy in your purse or wallet. You’d never be able to get to it in an emergency. You have to use scissors to cut the tiny pill out! But, with the Imodium Multi-Symptom, you simply bend the corner at the perforation, pull the paper back and access the pill. It is a larger pill so for people who have difficult swallowing, you may want to buy a small bottle of Imodium – no individual packages to mess with.”

For Diarrhea “The new packing is impossible to open. I cannot open the packet. Did you ever hear “if it a’int broke don’t fix it”? Why did you change? I like the product now I need to find a new one.”

For Diarrhea, Acute “I left Florida for a trip to Budapest, Hungary with an acute case of diarrhea that threatened to spoil the expensive day trips I had paid for. I apothecary recommended I take Lopedium brand capsules (only available in a few countries, not the USA). It after taking just two capsules and as needed for the remainder on the trip, with no side affects.. Imodium A-D is the US equivalent, I understand.”

For Diarrhea, Chronic “I have used this over the counter medication for many years. I have IBS and I find this Imodium A-D works to stop my diarrhea. It might be a good idea to take it with you where ever you go for emergencies. If you have IBS you should talk with your doctor about diet.”

I’ve used it for years. March 14, 2015
