Thank you CRguy. I'm glad it helped you!*hugs* Unfortunately, I can't use any medications for constipation or diarrhea. Medications for constipation give me severe cramping and severe diarrhea even at the smallest dose. If I take immodium I will be constipated for a week. I have to eat vegetables I can tolerate, high fiber cereal such as frosted mini wheats raisin bran. I'm in an asthma flare due a virus so I'm on 40mg of prednisone for 7 days. Prednisone usually doesn't mess my stomach up too badly as long as I take it with food.
