Looking in Hale, he says this (same names for different things) is ok, approved by AAP for breastfeeding mothers:

Loperamide (Imodium, Novo-Loperamide, Gastro-stop

This Might be ok, but not thoroughly reviewed:
Lomotil, Diphenoxylate, Tropergen

oops, sorry, that was supposed to be "different names for same thing!"
