Doctor has prescribed suppositories which I use for every bowel movement, if I didn’t use these I would get all of the symptoms of wanting to go, but unable to go, until I had to rush to the toilet with chroni diarrhoea, & would be lucky if I made it in time. Don’t know what… read more

I have severe diarrhea all the time. Sometimes I wouldn't eat for days to make it stop. I have messed my self all the way to my socks and shoes many times. I carry pads and underwear in my purse and jeans in my car. I have tried many drugs and taken many tests at northwestern medical center in Chicago. Finally they have put me on 3 Imodium tabs 3 times a day before meals. It's worked like a charm. Now we are backing off on that little by little. I feel so much better now and haven't messed my pants since.
