Yes take Imodium when you have to be somewhere or are meeting friends for dinner
I have been taking Imodium for about 5 years and my doctor told me it won’t hurt me
Most of the time it works

Hi Sawsarah , i take imodium for the same reason sometimes just to get me through and outing ocassoin. But sometimes I have found that it could cause horrblie constipation So keepdrinking lots lots water and try to move more active keeps your bowels active ok and some fruit that your stomach can handle. So water, move more, fruut or you will get plugged up. Lol 👍🤗❤️

Thank you Carol was hoping someone could share that they do it that way I know it would be okay for me :) I have taken it before but didn’t always work I have to travel on Saturday and Sunday so maybe I will start off with 2 as that is the first dose and take 1 on Sunday Just want to enjoy the holidays without having to get off the highway and panic having to find a bathroom especially on Christmas 🎅. Thank you for everyone who responded. We have to continue to share and support. Merry Christmas and all the very best in 2023. May our stomachs and ibs be a little kinder on us lol
