YOU SUGGESTED OAT BRAN TABS, I WAS WONDERING IF I SHOULD OVERLAP THE OAT BRAN WITH THE IMODIUM? IF SO HOW LONG/
Response from Dr. Henry
you can try -- the gut often takes a while to get used to higher fiber intake (which can lead to more gas and loose stools initially). If you are taking the oat bran and your gut is doing OK then you could try to taper the Immodium or just use it as needed.
