Many years ago I had a long discussion with one of my consultants about the fact that Immodium in tablet form was too much for me so she prescribed Loperamide in liquid form so that I could make the necessary adjustments for myself. I made accurate measures of it by using a 5ml syringe with minor measurements on the side.(she also provided this) The reasons for caution on these drugs is obvious as they can cause severe constipation (blockages) very quickly. However, if you know how your body reacts and you know what effect your diet has, I cannot see any reason why this shouldn't be an answer to the problem of looseness. As with all these things it is as well to discuss the problems and possible solutions with the doctors first. However, if you are confident within yourself about the whole matter then any 'reasonable' medical person should allow for some experimentation. On a personal level, by the time I have explained to them all my previous experiementations and gadgets I have made, along with a detailed explantion of the successes and failures, I find that they are only too willing to let me 'play' with the drugs as an alternative.
Best wishes Bill
hope this helps
Rather than using another chemical medicine, It is better to use absorbing foods such as saltine crackers and minute rice, according to nursing studies in relation to both colo- & ileo- ostomates.
And, again, it's a matter of personal belief.
by my doctor for the loose stool ,I stopped taking it because,it caused cramping to my stomach.
I hope you print this all out so you have it on hand.
