Nevermind just saw the "typically relieved with defecation" which is a pretty big indicator of IBS.
I still agree with you though. This sounds like a case of IBD and I picked E to try and tone down inflammation. Giving someone an opiate for intermittent diarrhea seems kind of dumb...
Just googled, "Indications for loperamide" and this is what came up: Imodium® (loperamide hydrochloride) is indicated for the control and symptomatic relief of acute nonspecific diarrhea and of chronic diarrhea associated with inflammatory bowel disease.
lol, I feel dumb. I knew it was IBS (half my fam has it and just manage through dieting). Went into overthinking hyperdrive, and all it was was your standard anti-diarrheal. step has taken away all my sanity.
