I was wondering if anyone could give me some input about Imodium or Loperamide. I've been changing my epilepsy medicine on a regular basis and the one I found to be the most effective tends to mess up my stomach. If I take a generic Imodium every three days or so, I seem to be okay. Is this a dangerous supplement or is taking the medicine okay. The only thing I could find was this quote; "abuse and dependence; physical dependence to IMODIUM in humans has not been observed. However, studies in monkeys demonstrated that Ioperamide hydrochloride at high dose produced symptoms of physical dependence of the morphine type." Classic; addiction to morphine. Please help me out. I am going to see a gastro doctor in August but the last time I checked, I wasn't a monkey :D
