Can I take imodium?


Hi all

Been having a bit of tummy trouble today. I have some imodium but threw out the outer box. Anyone know is it safe during pregnancy? If not, what can I do to relieve problem? Lol

It's on my safe list--but only after trying other things (fluids, BRAT diet, etc) for 24-48 hours.

I got told if it does not pass in 48hrs you can take it. I have taken it twice and everything has been okay. But I only took the initial two and did not take anymore after them

I feel for you. I had a bad bout of gastroenteritis for over a week, which saw me in the hospital on an IV drip. I was told there was nothing I could take. I was told drink loads of water and eat bland food.

That said, eventually, I could stand it no longer and took the immodium. I only took one dose, but it eased up enough to be bearable, and it was gone within another 4 days or so.

I wouldn't wish it on anyone! Good luck!
