I am 65-years of age. Three years ago I had my entire colon removed due to UC. I do not wear an ostomy, as they reconstructed my small intestine into a J-pouch.

Since then, I have been on 12-14 Imodium AD tablets a day and 4-5 level teaspoons of Metamucil Fiber daily to keep me in a non-diarrhea state and to keep me somewhat "regular".

Would Lomotil be an effective alternative, and could this be an ongoing medication for me?
