Medication

Are you able to give me any advice on what medications can help/hinder my bowel leakage?

Re: Medication

Hi Sally

Some medications have the side effect of changing the consistency of stool, and medications such as laxatives can improve gut motility and this in turn can improve/ prevent symptoms of constipation.

Another medication (Imodium) can improve the consistency of the stool if it is too loose.

Whilst medication is available over the counter I would suggest you seek advise from your GP 1st as they will be able to give a holistic assessment to ensure it is the correct treatment option.
