You could take imodium to stop the diahorrhea, but the problem is the nature of the irritable bowel can be diahorrea and contipation, so in using imodium you then can cause constipation to occur, which is annoying and can be painful too. I would advice asking your GP for medication,and advice, the meds you can get help by slowing down the peristalsis the action of digesting food, this means that you will not get that painful feeling in the stomach after eating, Fibrogel is very good stuff too for helping to stop constipation, the fibres in it help to regulate the bowel movements. There are books well worth reading for advise on food that you should and should not eat, foe example borasicas are not good, ie brocolli does not help when you have IBS. It can be a real pain literally. I wish you well.
