I wish who ever has this side effect big hugs, and the knowledge that this, too, shall pass. Too slowly, but it will. I went to diapers for everyday. Cried when I did, but saved me time, laundry, and embarrasment. Kept a change of clothes in the car. Carried them in a small zippered bag, along with portable wipes, and Aquaphore. Baby wipes are cheaper, more portable and work just fine.
For times I couldnt, just couldnt, have Diarrhea, such as a wedding, or a flight, I used Lomotil. (Diphenoxylate with atropine) It works, but when you stop taking it, its rough. It also has many interactions with other meds.
And, btw, make sure you use Aquaphore after the 2nd episode in a day, and every episode thereafter. It works to keep your skin protected from the feces. The most portable version is the one meant for lips. Just be sure not to get a menthol flavored.... ask me how I know that! LOL
Good luck, and much love.
Sometimes life SUCKS! Sometimes it doesn't. I prefer when it doesn't! If you're ever bored, read my biography. Bring snacks..... LOL Monica
