Immodium works the best for opiate withdraws!    It binds in your intestines like opiates but doesn't cross the blood/brain barrier.    It will be your best friend for a while.   :))

I understand.   The Immodium Multi Symptom does help me with those symptoms too.   Other than that, Tums, 7 Up, & crackers help.

I'm 24 days in and most days I feel like I spend the morning trying to feel better as you describe.  I thought it was just me!   Usually within half hour to an hour after I wake up I still have to hit the bathroom.    Usually after lunch and eating something substantial (which I don't feel like in the mornings) I start to feel better.   In the meantime, I eat toast, crackers, yogurt, bananas, things like that in the morning.
