[Alert] Stomach Pills Killing Americans?!
We’ve all been there before…
The urgent stop on your road trip or the abrupt ending of your golf game — all because you’re suffering from painful and unpredictable diarrhea.
And you might think that taking an over-the-counter anti-diarrhea pill like Imodium is the best way to get your stomach back on track.
But it’s not.
Because as it turns out, this deadly drug could be doing a lot more than just treating your diarrhea…
It could also be putting you on the fast track to some serious heart conditions — or even death.
Previous studies have linked long-term Imodium use to stomach problems and lethargy.
But it’s now clear that this toxic drug takes a major toll on your heart.
Last month, a report published in the Annals of Emergency Medicine found deaths caused by Imodium are on the rise.
In fact, at least a dozen other deaths or cases of life-threatening heart problems have been discovered recently.
But this is just the tip of the iceberg… some medical experts suspect that there are hundreds more cases that aren’t reported.
So why are people overdosing on (and dying from) Imodium?
It’s simple. Taking more Imodium than recommended doses can produce a high similar to the one produced by opioids like OxyContin.
And taking too much can lead to irregular heartbeats, which can cause heart attack and kill you.
Even worse, the FDA has done little to warn you about the possible dangers of taking these drugs — just suggesting that drugmakers lower package quantities.
The maximum approved daily dose for adults is 8 mg per day for over-the-counter use and 16 mg per day for prescription use. It can be sold under the brand name Imodium A-D or as the generic compound loperamide.
But if you’re suffering from diarrhea, your best bet is to skip the Imodium altogether. This could prevent you from having a serious heart issue, becoming dependent on Imodium or even dying.
Instead, eat a banana. This tasty fruit can stop your diarrhea because it helps protect your stomach lining, replenish your potassium levels and increase your good gut bacteria — all of which are essential to curing your diarrhea.
