Last year my family and I went on a trip, unfortunately we all are something that did not sit right with out stomachs! Luckily for us my mother in law had some IMODIUM with her! Serious lifesaver! We all were feeling better with in hours! Works fast and fantastic!!!!
My life saver ! I got a bad stomach bug and took the capsules from my local pharmacy for about $5-6 and they saved me ! Had painful cramps and had to use the bathroom every 15-20 mins. It started to work about 10mins after drinking them. I would buy them again
I remember being out of the house and a friend of mine gave me a little packet when I was in need. I thought I had to go home because I didn't want to be out when my stomach was upset and not wanting to get "sick" while I was out. So after taking two of these pills I noticed a change quite quickly. I was amazed how well they work. The pills are so small I didn't have any issues swallowing them. There was no chalky taste either, The pill form for me is more preferable and it works as fast as liquid form.
This stuff works great! It is very fast acting, and I have never suffered bad side effects. I can also say they work great for my husband. He has to take them quite often due to IBS. We have these in the medicine cabinet at all times.
My boyfriend has a sensitive stomach. So anytime we go out of town, or on vacation he takes some just in case. If he eats something that upsets his stomach, he will take some & is feeling better in about 30-60 minutes.
I took this with me while traveling overseas to a country where the water wasn't really drinkable. I took this with me and it really came in handy and most importantly worked when I needed it to! Definitely Recommended!
Are people really using this as a gateway drug when they can't get pain medication? I've read an article that People are buying these off the shelf a because it has a opiate dirivituve in them that causes same affect as painpills
The main ingredient in imodium is actually a very strong narcotic. But it does not cross the blood brain barrier so you will never get the high feeling one gets from pain medication, only the other side effect: constipation. Imodium used to be a controlled prescription medication until the FDA thourghly studied it to make sure there was no way one could abuse the drug to get high. As someone that works with pharmaceuticals I strongly discourage abusing this type of medication. It can cause permanent bowel problems depending on degree of abuse.
