Lomotil Overview

The drug combination diphenoxylate/atropine (trade name Lomotil) is a popular oral anti-diarrheal in the United States, manufactured by Pfizer. Its UK BAN generic name is co-phenotrope.

Lomitol for colostomy/stoma patient

Will lomitol harden stools or just slow down quantity and frequency? I have permanent coloscopy (about a foot removed)and some days I poop most of day. I take 2 in am and 2 in pm. Also take Imodium around 6/7 tabs daily. This combination helps but some days I still produce a little at a time. ## I reside in Fort Mill South Carolina. I am going to try reducing the Imodium I take daily and take for Lomotil every day four times daily and perhaps take two Imodium before bed ## It is really hard to say the effect it may have on any given person that tries it. According to NIH reports, for some, it may slow down the amount of bowel movements, and possibly make them more solid, but for others it could actually cause constipation as a side effect. Other side effects may include nausea, dizzines...

lomotil and methylprednisolone

Can these two pills be taken at the same time? I have IBS and take Lomotil as needed and my dr. prescribed Methylprednlsolone for my sinus infection. Can these be taken together? I don't feel great. ## Hello, Lvf! How are you? I'm sorry that you're not feeling well. I didn't find any interactions listed between these two medications, but it always best to double check such information to be sure. What type of symptoms are you having? The Methylprednisolone is a steroid class medication, so it can cause some annoying side effects, such as headache, nausea, weight changes, fluid retention and elevated heart rate.

3 Replies RSS
If I'm allergic to sulfa can I take lomotil? I had a reaction to the sulfa salt in Levbid. My sulfa allergy is bad enough that I have to watch what vegetables I eat. I'm also allergic to latex, eggs, cleocin, flagyl. I'm not sure which sulfate I'm allergic to. Also am hypersensitive to sulfides and can't drink wine. I don't attempt beer because I have celiacs. Just thought if I provided all my allergies, you might see a common thread. My allergies are bad enough I have an epi pen ## Hi Angela, Based on my research, Lomotil does contain a sulfa-based active ingredient (atropine sulfate)... So I'd say it is something to stay away from if you have a sulfa allergy. I also wasn't aware that there were so many types of sulfa/sulfur/sulfate allergies? But an art...
