In brief: Okay

I'm glad it was your friend and not you.
Taking a medicine that is primarily meant to treat diarrhea, and that will make you constipated, probably isn't your idea of fun. Supposedly it spares the opioid receptors in the brain, but i've wondered. You're smart enough to find healthtap -- i bet you can help your friend find more productive activities you can both enjoy.
