Comment from: Argeebee, 55-64 Female on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: August 31

I have been taking one Immodium 2mg tablet daily for over four years for chronic mild diarrhea caused by radiation therapy for prostate cancer. I have only one question: I am also a diabetic, does Immodium cause a rise in blood sugar?

Have used loperamide to control IBS symptoms for 15 years. At first, it worked great, but I appear to have developed a tolerance for the drug, because it has little or no effect now.

Comment from: NYGuy, 45-54 Female on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: July 19

This drug works great for shutting down IBS symptoms, but it always had a backlash. Took me a while to figure out why: Part of my problem was Lactose intolerance. Lactose is a filler in this drug -- a terrible idea! An alternative doc said to stop milk, milk products, coffee, chocolate, cheese, many oils etc. Finally got off the drug too. IBS is history. It's what you eat!
