Entyvio, Imodium and Me

I've been on Entyvio for a year and a half or more, and for the most part I'm pleased with it. I have a lot less psoriasis for one thing. But occasionally even when I'm avoiding my triggers I get diarrhea. And then it stays around. A while back I tried Imodium to stop it and it did amazingly well. Now there are times when I take it once or twice a week just to stay away from the bathroom. Is this Entyvio not doing it's job?? Is there any problem with taking Imodium this frequently??
You shouldn't need to be taking imodium if Entyvio is working fully. Have you mentioned this to your GI. It could be that your dosage might need adjusting.
