does anyone have any experience with this stuff? AKA imodium

apparently it can take an edge off of withdrawal, but to what extent?

And is it OK to take late in opioid recovery since it does in some ways act as an opioid?

Yes you can take it because it crosses the brain barrier, but is immediately pumped back out into non-central nervous system circulation by P-glycoprotein which essentially shields the CNS from exposure thus rendering the opiods moot in your system.

Unless you drink like a gallon at a time, you shouldn't have any problem with the opiod factor.

lopermide is a massively important part of induction to suboxone from heroin, ive only realised this recently, but the stuff is cheap and a god send for people like me who suffer real bad in that area when making the crossover from heroin to sub. lopermide can make the difference between successfull transition and relapse imho
