Suboxone Doctor in Miami: Dr. Mitchell’s Clinic

Medication Crisis and Imodium AD
by Dr. Robert Ben Mitchell, D.O. - 786-262-5750

There’s nothing worse than being in stable recovery and then running out of your medication without any refills. This can happen from losing medication, losing track of refills or follow-up appointments, and things like the Category 5 Hurricane Dorian which I am currently preparing for as it approaches South East Florida.

In a recovery crisis such as this, remember one thing: over-the-counter Imodium AD. You can buy it at any pharmacy without a prescription, and it’s active ingredient, loperamide, is a very weak opioid with zero euphoria capacity. And, this is very, very important: if used above the limits written on the box, it can be cardio-toxic and stop your heart! However, if you’ve run out of buprenorphine (Suboxone or Subutex), then buy some Imodium AD and, used as directed on the box, it can take the edge off of withdrawal symptoms. As one patient told me, “I didn’t feel great, but I was a hell of a lot better with it than without it.”

So, if you forget where you medication is, or if you forget there are no more refills, or if you forget to make a follow-up appointment with your doctor, always remember Imodium AD: used as directed, it is a safety net against full-blown withdrawals.
