Loperamide Over Usage
My 20 year old son has been fighting Obsessive Compulsive Chronic Constipation for about 2 years.  He spent 4 weeks treatment at Mayo Clinic in October diagnosed with severe pelvic floor dysfunction with rectal prolapse and was doing anal digitation.  They tried biofeedback but wouldn't stop the straining and stuff.  He was using laxatives and loperamide on and off.  They ended up giving him a temporay loop ileostomy about a month ago.  He has been taking up to 48 OTC Loperamide pills in about 3 days time.....around 10-15 in the evening so his small intestine will slow down and he can sleep.  He knows the max. dose but says he has to take 10-15 before it does him any good.  Are there any serious long terms or short terms effects of him doing this that will harm him any?
