    not sure but if you have the dreaded \"orange\" I personally wouldn't take as it's not a stomach upset

    I don't have the orange stuff - thank goodness. It's just that when I am on a long journey etc and away from a loo, I used to take a \"precautionary\" Imodium.

    No - you should not take Immodium while on the blueys because they are 'fighting each other' in the gut....both work in the gut doing completely the opposite thing so I'm afraid it's a no, no.

    I went to see my doctor yesterday and he said that as long as diarrhoea is not being caused by eating too much fat, it is OK to take Imodium.
