Diarrhea problems which ruins my life

Hi I have had IBS for about 12 years now.

I suffer so badly with Diarrhea and sometimes I am scared to go out. If I do go out I take Imodium Plus. Ordinary Imodium, instants etc doesn't help me just the Plus.

Does anyone else suffer badly with diarrhea and if so what do you take to help the situation. I have had diarrhea tablets prescribed by the doctor which don't work and tablets to take 20 minutes before I eat which doesn' t help. I stopped taking the tablets just Imodium Plus which I have to pay for as the doctor said they don't prescribe this. It costs me a lot just to buy the Imodium plus.

Some people do have a better quality of life using Imodium. The UK has so few treatment options compared to other countries.

Thank you for sharing.

I can understand that. Buscopan works sometimes, but not all the time for me.

Imodium unfortunately constipates me for days and usually results in a lot of abdominal pain.

It goes to show that IBS requires individualized treatment. One treatment doesn't work for all.

15 years with IBS-D  I did a post on taking an allergy med that changed my life BIG TIME and jeff said some doctors are prescribing benadryl for IBS-D, so check that post out.  No doctor ever mentioned it to me, wish they would have because I would have tried it sooner.  Im not using benadryl but another allergy med.  see my post ty
