My solution to all this, begins with a rounded tsp. of psyllium product (Metamucil) daily with Protein shake & whatever else you have to add to it, like lysine, Bone-up, drops of Jarro-Sil (silicone for nails), MSM for arthritis, & especially glutamine additive. Even if you're unsure of it, give it a mighty try, & use it for the rest of your life, on hand.
I was taking up to over the "safe" dose of 9 caps of Lomotil/day, or 12 + Lomotil prn, 2 at a time.
It works well, just keep using more 'till it works. they say glutamine is kind of vital, as it "feeds" the fast-growing cells of the large intestine & repairing the gut as it adds bulk to your skinny body. You keep your "pump" longer with this not too expensive powder, 1/2 tsp/1-3X day.
Alcohol make the runs more easily, so keep your pills in your pocket, & diapers in the trunk.
Again, w/o Metamucil you are sunk.
Vicodin of course helps to plug you up, so that's always good for pain & diarrhea.
Peace to all ya
