OPIOID ADDICTS USE IMODIUM, POPULAR ANTI-DIARRHEA DRUG AS A SUBSTITUTE TO GET HIGH
Imodium is a widely available, over-the-counter medicine to treat diarrhea, and is meant to be taken as a 2-4 mg per dose.To get a high or to cope with withdrawal symptoms, it needs to be taken in very large amounts, in the range of 25 to 50 capsules. Imodium is actually an opioid and is 40 to 50 times more potent than morphine in the gut. 

If it’s combined with tuberculosis or cardiac medications, it can trigger arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) or worsen the risk of arrhythmias. Poison control centers reported that overdoses doubled between 2009 and 2015
