Nope, I don’t need to take it most of the time. My poop by nature is hard and dry due to my medication I take.
I did take it once, but that was while traveling and I had eaten airplane food on the way to the initial destination to be followed by a multiple days of road trips with about 16 other people in a van. During the drive, I was stopping at every gas station on the way across Oklahoma and Texas and letting out pure liquid.
By the time I got from the initial hotel to the second destination, I was in agony and my backside was raw from wiping. The Imodium did the trick for the rest of the trip and made for some really, really hard, and quite large too, poops afterwards.
When I need to shit, I love holding it in. It’s such a weird but comforting feeling as it plays peek a boo. I’ve taken immodium to keep it going for a while, but it practically turns me into a giant fart. It’s pretty amazing stuff.
