I discovered Loperamide by accident after several years of not being able to travel or go anywhere for an entire day. I take two 2mg tablets each morning after breakfast and one 2mg tablet after dinner each night. I am back to living a normal life and traveling. I used to be afraid to go anywhere at anytime. I use generic brands from the local pharmacy or grocery store.

For whatever reson, this drug seems to take 2 days to show any results. When you have diarrhea, dehydration sets in long before this medicine works. I have had better luck with Pepto Bismol.

Was prescribed by my doctor for IBS. Was told to take one a day or as needed. It has significantly helped my bathroom problems and I feel like I don't have as many emergency bathroom visits.
