Why do I have diarrhea everyday unless I take loperamide hydrochloride?

Need to be seen. My first concern is malabsorption / maldigestion; my second is functional bowel syndrome; my third is a colon or other tumor. Loperamide just slows the gut down. You may be masking serious disease by not getting this checked. Good luck. Read more...

I have loperamide hydrochloride tablets that are expired April 2017. I'm going on a road trip tomorrow and I have diarrhea can I take them?

Yes. Even if the expiration date wre April 2016, it is likely safe to take this type of drug. Wonder why you are asking this question since the expiration date is over 6 months away. Read more...

I took saline laxative this morning and have had diarrhea for about 5 hours...would it be okay to take imodium (loperamide) to stop the diarrhea?

Probably. Depends how much saline lax you took. Imodium (loperamide) slows down peristalsis wherein food is pushed along the gut. Taking the saline laxative just seems like you floode everything so it all flooded out not a process by which some process was making the walls of the gut squeeze along. Imodium (loperamide) would quiet down that process so I don't see how it could help. Tincture of time would work fine in this situation. Read more...
