How can Lomotil aka Lonox be abused?
How can you abuse a drug like that? it is for diarrhea. How does someone separate the med in a pill? I am just curious I am not planning to actually do it. I read about it and it says atropine is added to keep ppl from abusing it but I am wondering how and why would you abuse a med like this? Asked by Margurite Pachla 1 year ago.

Yes Lomotil (diphenoxylate/atropine) can be theoretically abused. Diphenoxylate, loperamide, the active ingredient in Imodium, and difenoxin (Motofen) are opioid agonists. Difenoxin is also an active metabolite of diphenoxylate. Like other opioids diphenoxylate causes constipation and is thus a very effective treatment for diarrhea. Opioid receptor sites are found in the gastrointestinal tract, spinal cord, and brain. Diphenoxylate however only slightly crosses the blood brain barrier (BBB) but at therapeutic doses does not cause euphoria, analgesia, or other morphine-like effects. Loperamide however does NOT cross the BBB. At high doses, 40-60 mg, diphenoxylate may produce euphoria, suppression of opioid withdrawal (abstinence syndrome), and physical dependence after chronic administration. Evidence of physical dependence to diphenoxylate has been reported when it is used long term even at recommended dosage. Preparations of diphenoxylate contain a subtherapeutic quantity of atropine, which can cause severe nausea and weakness, to discourage deliberate overdosage. The Health Canada Product Monograph for Lomotil tablets (2.5 mg diphenoxylate/0.025 mg atropine) indicates the following under the Dependence Liability section: "Addiction to (dependency on) LOMOTIL is theoretically possible at high dosage. Therefore, the recommended dosage should not be exceeded. Because of the structural and pharmacological similarity of diphenoxylate to meperidine [Brand name DEMEROL] and similar drugs with a definite addiction potential, LOMOTIL should be administered with considerable caution to patients who are receiving addicting drugs, to individuals known to be addiction-prone, or to those whose histories suggest that they may increase the dosage on their own initiative. Because a subtherapeutic dose of atropine has been added to the diphenoxylate hydrochloride, to discourage deliberate overdosage, there should be strict observance of the contraindications and precautions relative to the use of atropine." In The United States Lomotil is a federally controlled schedule V substance. Motofen (difenoxin/ atropine) is a prescription medication in The US and it is a federally controlled schedule IV substance (the same level as phenobarbital, Darvocet, Valium, and Tenuate). Just because a drug is for something like diarrhea does not mean it can't be abused. Actually Opium Tincture (once known as Laudanum), a schedule II controlled substance, is FDA approved for the treatment of diarrhea. Answered by Byron Blumkin 1 year ago.

Could phenegran or lomotil cause mucus in stools?
My bowel movements have been NOTHING but mucus. I haven't eaten anything but toast today. Asked by Bryanna Negroni 1 year ago.

No. The lomotil is to prevent diarrhea and the phenergan is for nausea. The problem might be because you're not eating. Also try reading the side effects and warnings on the paper work that came with these prescriptions. You also might try asking the pharmacist too. They are often overlooked and can be called anytime the pharmacy is open for info too. People forget that they are experts on these types of questions. You might need to go to a GI doctor for a diagnosis on the cause if this keeps on for too much longer. Your body needs the energy and protein from the food and when it doesn't have any waste from the food stools can't form and this is the end result. The problem with lomotil is that it slows the action of the gut and intestines. You need to ask the people I advised you to. I really think that the problem is taking both or one of these with not eating for the day is the problem here. Watch for any signs of dehydration like muscle cramps, extreme thirst, and decreased urination, along with feeling weak or dizzy too. Toast alone is not enough to prevent this. Please make sure that you get help if these symptoms start to happen. Good luck and God Bless Answered by Marisha Esary 1 year ago.

No. The mucus is a sign of irritation to the lining of the bowel. If it persists see a doctor Answered by Soledad Svedin 1 year ago.


Is it okay to take promethazine with lomotil?
Hello, Lomotil make little nauseous. Is it ok to take promethazine? because i can't take domperidone or metoclopramide with lomotil . thanks :) Asked by Kristin Johngrass 1 year ago.

Domperidone and metaclopramide speed up the peristalsis (rhythmic squeezing) of the bowel. Lomotil slows it down. Taking them together is counterproductive and could be dangerous. Promethazine is a phenothiazine antipsychotic and is now banned in the US. It's also an anticholinergic antihistamine. Combining Lomotil with promethazine is contraindicated, both because Lomotil should not be used with anticholinergics, and also because they are both CNS depressants, which means they both make you sleepy and using them together can impair your breathing, especially if you fall asleep. How about taking Lomotil with food? That should take care of the nausea and it's a lot safer. Bananas would be ideal, as they do the same thing Lomotil does, as well as boost your potassium.

Lomotil users?
My doctor prescribed lomotil for me for IBS.. Has this medicine worked for you? Have you ever heard anything about lomotil effecting your fertility? Asked by Brandie Murrietta 1 year ago.

I have a really good friend who recently moved away who used Lomotil all the time for Krohn's disease. It helped her immensely. For a long time, she couldn't go out shopping or anything for long periods of time, because she'd have to run to the bathroom all the time. She was always afraid she wouldn't make it in time. I have no idea about the fertility aspects, I know it has some absorption properties, but I can't imagine they would affect fertility. I know the pill gave her new life, she could resume going out in public. You could look it up on line and the md should know. Good luck. Answered by Micah Lashmet 1 year ago.


Help with new meds, lomotil & belladonna?
i also take levbid in the am and pm which has helped.. and i looked the meds up online and know what to look for for side effects and stuff but i just dont know how to use these to make them the most effective- Asked by Yetta Salano 1 year ago.

i have IBS and recently saw a new doctor, he gave me belladonna for the stomach pain i get with bowel movemtns and lomotil for loose stool and stuff. thing is, he said he wasnt sure how often i would need them or how much i would need so he gave it to me as a PRN when i have symptoms. i just have never heard of these meds and am not sure how they should be taken? before i eat, after? before or after loose stool? when i have a stomach ache, like im confused- Answered by Zulema Scheer 1 year ago.

Lomotil makes your colon less spastic. You can take it with food. I find it highly effective. Belladonna (atropine) is good for calming your stomach and small intestine. You can take it with food, too. They both should help prevent a loose stool. Take them after you have a BM. If you take the Belladonna when you have a stomach ache, it may be able to stop the pain.

The drug Lomotil...?
I am just curious to know if by taking Lomotil, that benzodiazepines could show up positive in a drug test?? And if any of you could back up your answers with a website or anything, it would be helpful. Thank you! Asked by Mayra Lucarell 1 year ago.

the drug Lomotil is (Diphenoxylate hydrochloride) this drug is similar to meperidine (Demerol), but the Lomotil is metabolized into diphenoxylic acid, this should pose no problem in drug screen, no web site needed Answered by Maria Hadwin 1 year ago.

It should show up as a narcotic, not as a benzodiazepine. Diphenoxylate is a narcotic, and an anticholinergic is added to discourage abuse (in larger-than-prescribed doses it'll make you feel sick). Answered by Dierdre Tarkey 1 year ago.

no it won't show up because lomotil doesn;t contain benzodiazepines Answered by Tori Marciel 1 year ago.

I don't think so since it doesn't have any benzos in it. There is a narcotic base, but not in that class. As long as you have a prescription for it, what's to worry? Sorry, I don't have a website to give you, just experience. Answered by James Ostermann 1 year ago.

I agree with the 1st poster. It is more likely to show up as an opiate, but it will not show up as a benzo. Also, like she said, if you have a script, no worries. If not, start chuggin' water. Answered by Adina Devor 1 year ago.


Lomotil prolonged use?
Wow, I did not realize that lomotil was a narcotic, but I have been taking it occasionally (only 1 pill a night, not entirely sure what does they are, but apparently only 2.5 mg of the active ingredient) over the pass couple weeks to prevent gas. Anything bad going to happen? Asked by Teri Alsbury 1 year ago.

lomotil is antispasmodic drug, means it reduces intestinal periastalsis. you can not take it for long time as it may cause paralytic illeus(paralysis of intestine). Answered by Vella Altieri 1 year ago.

Lomotil Pregnancy Answered by Wendolyn Schnickel 1 year ago.

I had a sever tummy bug at around 4.5 months and after 4 days when the diarrohea still hadn't dissapated the doctor told me to take panadeine (no more than 8 per day). I tried it and it didn't work at all but it hasn't harmed my baby. I as desperate as it was so bad that I would drink about 200mL of water and about 500mL would come out the other end (sorry TMI). The most important thing is to keep drinking fluids (I kno it's hard). Also, my doctor told me to eat low fibre foods like chicken noodle soup (cup a soup), dry salty white biscuits (nothing with grains in it and NOT wholemeal). Also, 2 minute noodles. Once I started eating again it seemed to rememdy itself. Goodluck! Answered by Altagracia Ausherman 1 year ago.
