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?

I'd used lomotil on and off for many years. It does make me feel sick sometimes but that's not the norm. It's a wonder for me

Chronic Constipation Lasting Over A Month.

Chronic Constipation Lasting Over A Month.

I have had chronic constipation my whole life. Within the last 2yrs it has gotten worse. Most of the time it will last over a month with no production. Yeah... Go ahead and say it... "She is full of crap!" Well.. Yes I am, literally. Then my Dr will tell me to do a prep just to clear me out. Then it starts all over. I have been taking Amitiza 24 MCG twice a day to help me go, for about 1 and a half yrs. It worked at first but its like I became immune to it. It no longer works. I continue to… read more

My Dr seems to think it's the medication. It's very debilitating. I'm afraid to do anything. It gets worse as the day goes on. By like 3 I have to stay seated. Just wondering if anyone else has had any head issues.

I’ve been like this for many years but it’s getting much worse as I’ve got older, I’m now 68 yrs. & have had many accidents during this time. I’m at my wits end as this is controlling my life. I am otherwise fit & healthy

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.
