Hello, I just wanted to ask for some reassurance. I have recently been having loose bowel movements as a result of ibs. I don’t normally go more often than usual but the frequency is looser than it should be. I took 2mg of Imodium on Monday and have been fine since then. I have had a bowel movement today (still no change in frequency of bowel movements) but the frequency was much more like constipation. However, out of fear of having the return of the loose stools I have taken another pill of immodium. I am now worried that I may be doing damage, despite going a normal number of times.

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

I can assure that taking a couple of Imodium will not cause you any sort f damage and you will be absolutely fine '

We do advised people having non- infectious diarrhea to take Imodium even 4-6 times daily

So just relax you will be fine

Please do let me know if you have any other question
