Although this medication stops my diarrhea, I have found that about 6-7 hours after taking, I have been subjected to severe vomiting, sweats & dizziness.

I tried this yrs ago and it didn't work. So I was placed on 30 mg codeine and it worked well, then it started not to work so they upped the does to 60 mg of codeine. Now its not working as good as it did before. So I tried lomotil again and it seems like its working but I've also been on humira for the past yr for my crohns disease....

I have chronic diarrhea, IBS, for most of my adult life. I used to take boxes of over the counter anti-diarrhea meds. Since I have been on lomotil my life has been so much better because my symptoms are controllable.
