OK just saying......you can mix and match your own meds, sort of like Walter White on “Breaking Bad” except in this case it’s legal and appropriate to do so. You can be your own pharmacist and save some coin - I don’t know that Imodium is using higher quality loperamide and simethicone but maybe they are. Are there any Chemists here or Walter White wannabes who can comment on loperamide and simethicone potency and purification procedures? Can the generics be enhanced with cooking or distilling methods? Or mixed with enhancers?
In any event you do have a choice. Good luck.
