Bad news here too... They stopped selling Immodium Advanced chewables with simethicone (the gas reliever) about 8 months ago.

If I'd have known, I would have stocked up. They have something called "Imodium A-D EZ Chews" which unfortunately has sorbitol and mint flavoring, which plays hell on my GERD. Anyway, with IBS, WE're supposed to stay away from the sugar substitutes, so it beats me why they pump that junk into IBS medicine.

I get a loperamide 2mg Rx from my doc for 120 pills, which are usually gone in 2 weeks, but are great when I have them!

In France, they make the pill filler with milk products, as they do in Ireland the last time I was there in 2007. In the States they use corn.

BTW, this is the second time in 5 years that I've had IBS meds pulled off the market, the first when they stopped selling IB-Stat!!?!

Whyyyyyyyyyyy????
