Lomotil Can't Get It In UK

Lomotil Can't Get It In UK

Lomtil or Co Phenodrone is the only thing that really helps bad IBS Day days, but it is no longer available in the UK. Loperamide is not enough on bad days and although Codeine helps I don't want to use it during the day or become dependent on it . Any suggestions?

Has Anyone Ever Not Responded To Any Ibs Meds And Gi Prescribed Ibd Or Chrones Meds?

Any medical professionals out there know jd that would be an appropriate treatment plan if nothing else is working or that I am able to take? My GI is talking about putting me back on steroids to manage this because I have those days I feel like I'm at the starting line and it's incredibly frustrating.
