Has anyone used the OTC anti-diarrheal drug called loperamide (brand name Immodium) to relieve withdrawal symptoms? I have heard that It can actually help quite a lot. As a molecule it is actually a powerful opiate but it does not cross the blood brain barrier (which means it will not get you high at all) but apparently it can bind to the opiate receptors in your gut which can help with a lot of withdrawal symptoms. I don't really know how the safe way to do this is and what the dose is but it could be a really good option to help with withdrawals and it can be bought at any local pharmacy. If anyone has anymore information on the dosage and how long you should use please let us know because I think this could be a really valuable tool for anyone who is trying to quit opiates and does not want to go with the suboxone or methadone route.
