Lomotil for IBS

I'm a little hesitant to promote any type of medication so please consult with your doctor before jumping into these kinds of things. Anyway, as a person with IBS I can highly recommend the drug called Lomotil (US name). I went 12 years with IBS before even hearing about this medicine. Why my previous doctors never prescribed or even suggested it is a mystery. Please note, as with all IBS drugs this is not a cure...it only relieves the symptoms.

You can read more about Lomotil here:

The only downside I've noticed with this drug is that with prolonged use my body builds up a tolerance to the drug. I avoid this by not taking it every day. I take it for maybe 4-5 days and then go without for 2 days. It seems to work well.
