Anyone ever use hydrocodone to stop diarrhea?

Hi, first post but have done a lot of reading on this board. It seems really supportive! So, has anyone else used their pain meds to stop diarrhea? The reason I ask is because it has been a wonderful off label use in treating my chronic diarrhea. Background:  I'm 31 with anklyosing spondylitis, some unknown inflammatory bowel problems, severe tmj(sometimes my teeth don't line up), my neck vertebrae are all damaged except c1.  Until being put on remicade, I lived on the toilet. My bowels became inflamed when I was 17 and in the service. I receive the maximum disability rating from the va because it was so severe. I'm fairly certain this is an autoimmune condition but I've never had a proper definitive diagnosis. I still have loose stools regularly but for the most part I can take 2 7.5/325 hydrocondones and it will slow it down. Heck every once in a while it's solid. Thats a big deal for me! Every once in a while my colon will flare and poop blood. So, anyone else deal with this?
