After my j-pouch was removed I have been using 8 Loperamide daily. I also eat foods to thicken my output. I was using metamucil too but it didn't work as well.
Today I discovered my insurance company quit paying for Loperamide on 7/1. They will pay for the generic Lomitol. I have been reading up on it and one of the side effects is numbness in hands or feet. I have perpherial neuropathy in my feet so wonder about trying it.
Do any of you former j-pouchers use Lomitol? If so would you recommemd it? Have you had any side effects from using it and if so what kind?
OTC immodium, which is loperamide, isn't as predicitable because the pills just pass through me without disolving all the way due to my rapid transit time.
