Brief Answer:
Tab Loperamide

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the query

IntoneMV was approved by the FDA recently, it is a home based therapy for bowel and urinary incontinence. However the effectiveness of it is still under question as the product is still very new.
It is very difficult to treat Bowel incontinence medically, I recommend the best known drug for it, Tab Loperamide twice daily. However it has several side effects like bloating of the stomach, constipation and stomach discomfort. It might also aggravate stomach infections

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me
