Imodium (loperamide): I would question the real need for Imodium (loperamide) on a daily basis here. If your gastroenterologist is following you for ibs diarrhea-type, then this may be part of the therapy plan. But i would need more context to provide more detailed direction/recommendations. Seeing a licensed gastroenterologist (if you're not already) is recommended.

Usually 1-3 days: With mild, routine diarrhea, a patient can let nature clear her bowels the first day. Then medicines can be tried, such as Imodium (loperamide) for a couple of days, just to decrease the frequency of diarrhea while her body is getting rid of the problem. Drinking or eating just little bits, is helpful (not over-eating nor over-drinking). For anything more than mild symptoms, the doctor needs to evaluate.
