Hi I don’t know if anyone has made this decision. I have been taking Lomotil and Imodium switching between the 2. I find that neither really helps me so I’ve decided to stop taking the both of them to see if it makes a difference. As I don’t think it works as far as a bowel slower. I do go between 5-7 times a day and sometimes more. I’ve yet to find anything that helps me and I am 1 yr in with Jpouch I still have leakage. I taking antibiotics and I don’t think leakage is from untreated Pouchitis. I am at my wits end. If anyone have any suggestions at all I will be grateful. I’ve tried Metamucil, Citracel and the green one can’t think of the name right now and they all give me anal pressure with cramping even though that’s happening even if I don’t take that stuff. Does anyone else get the anal pressure with stomach cramping and urge to go to th bathroom?
