Purchased for my 84-year-old mother. I didn't expect to purchase this as online warnings state this can cause QT Prolongation in heart patients. Mom is a heart patient. I asked the PharmD what Mom could take - as he has access to the list of her medications as they are dispensed out of his Pharmacy. He told me Imodium AD. I told him about the risk I read about. He told me for her, the risk of QT prolongation outweighs the benefit of no diarrhea. I purchased the 2mg size.

The regular Imodium works great for me. Since I had part of my small intestine removed I rely on Imodium to stay under control. The softgels were a very bad experience. i took one softgel with a couple of other pills and the softgel ruptured. I had stinging in my throat and tears in my eyes. I tried flushing my mouth with water but it only helped a little. A couple of minutes later when I blew my nose again, the softgel case was ejected. No more softgels for me.

What concerns the most is the lack of dosage and frequency of use on the container. If that information is on there the font is so tiny that even with reading glasses I could not see it. My wife got me a pack of Depends on Tuesday (18 in a pack) and she just went back to the store for another pack. Hereafter I'll never get sof-gels again I do trust the caplet to work in one dose. Packing is an important point that you must work on. Many elderly folks rely on this product (me included) for occasional use. Can I take to many? Can I take them too close together? I'm very disappointed.

Unable to open

Review Text: 
It is impossible to open the "tear at notch" packets without a scissors and therefore cannot be opened away from home. Go back to the "bend at corner" packaging, which is much easier to open.

I've been using Immodium occasionally for years, and it works great; however, it is practically impossible to open. Please remember--this is a product that a consumer needs to use quickly. You really should rethink how you package it.

I had been having a lot of trouble for 9 days, & I went to my local Wal-Mart & they recommended just regular Imodium or Pepto-Bismol & I had tried Pepto-Bismol several times, so I purchased a box of Imodium Multi-Symptom Relief caplets & when I went home I went to the bathroom AGAIN, so I took 2 caplets afterwards. It took 10 minutes & it took effect right away! Now I have no more stomach pains, no more constantly going to the bathroom, no more gas or bloating...you can rest assured that I'll be purchasing your product from now on!

This product works very well. I found that if you cut with a scissors where the little line is you can tear it easier and they just pop out.
