Imodium Abuse Question: A rather obese person at work has cheerfully described how she regularly takes 20-30 imodiums at once to regulate her bowel movements.

I'm not sure if she has irritable bowel syndrome or some other GI disorder. She appears to use the imodium to stave off a need for repearted trips to the bathroom during the work day (and also when travelling). She has had to leave suddenly from work several times when the imodiums wore off and everything started to let go.
Holding off any judgement on her choice of continuing this regime, from a strictly medical perspective are there any health consequences of (ab)using imodium in this way?
