Always see your doctor if you are in any doubt as to the cause of any illness, especially gut issues, as there can be many reasons for digestive problems. This review contains mentions of diarrhoea and pooing, so consider yourself warned! INTRODUCTION I've always had a funny tummy. I've had all the tests you can imagine to figure out what's going on with my grumpy gut, but the final diagnosis I've been given is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). The problem is there is no cure; only strategies and medications to manage of the ... Read the complete review

If you have read my lastest op, then you will know that I've had an unfortunate time with the trots. If you haven't then I'll cut a long story short. A week ago I got severe Diarrhoea, and tried Diocalm, but to no avail. I then rang the emergency doctor for advice, as I was getting desperate. I had severe stomach pains and the runs so bad that I had to strap the toilet to my a**e, (joke). She asked me if Diocalm had an ingredient called loperamide in them, I said no, after reading the instructions that is, and she told me that any tablet with that in would put a stop to it all.

You may not think you have heard of Loperamide capsules, but most people would certainly recognise the brand name Immodium. Well basically, Loperamide capsules are the generic version of Immodium. In other words, they are exactly the same as Immodium, with exactly the same dosage of active ingredient, but without the brand name, fancy packaging and of course, inflated price tag. For example, recently, when my hubby had a particularly nasty case of "the runs", I popped into my local Wilkinson store to get a packet of Immodium. A packet cost just under £3, but a packet of Wilko diarrhoeah relief capsules, only cost 88p for 6 tablets. You can guess which one I ... Read the complete review
