Over the years, people have used all kinds of things to substances to get intoxicated. The newest substance may be one of the most disturbing so far. People are taking Imodium A-D to get high. That’s right, an anti-diarrheal over the counter medication is being used by people to get high. Reports are both kids experimenting and heroin addicts trying to get through withdrawals, take Imodium A-D to get high. In some cases, the individuals abusing the drug were taking 200x the recommended amount. Apparently, when taken at very high doses, the drug goes from simply slowing down the intestinal tract to causing an opiate-like high.
This, coupled with the drugs incredibly cheap cost of $10 for 400 tablets has heroin addicts in a pinch using the drug. The scary thing is when someone overdoses on Imodium, they may experience some serious life-threatening symptoms including heart problems and breathing problems which may result in death.
