Azathioprine and loperamide

I have been taking Azathioprine for 8 months and have noticed an improvement in conditions such as going to the toilet about 3 times a day compared to about 5 times a day. Also no blood and no pain (I rarely got pain anyway). I have just been away for a long weekend and while away took 2 x 2mg loperamide each morning. After a day I only went to the toilet once a day, something that I have not experienced in 45 years. My question is can I take loperamide every day (probably 1 rather than 2) while on Azathioprine?
