Depends: In adults, Imodium (loperamide) can be taken up to four times a day, for two days, for the managment of diarrhea. It will likely remain in your system for at least a half-day but the effects of this drug are not the same in all people. Some people require taking this medication after each loose bowel movement (up to four times a day), while others may not need such a high dose.

Discuss with Doc: There are some minor surgical risks but most risks are long term. There is a chance for pump failure and also issues with the catheter becoming clogged or having excess tissue growing at the tip. Pumps are best for short term use in terminal cancer. These are always a last resort and are for those patients who require high dose narcotics and are having too many side effects to tolerate oral med.
