Diarrhea : Pepsi is not the best thing to drink during a diarrheal episode. Carbonation certainly will not help. Eat a bland diet, avoid dairy, acidic foods and see a physician if you have fever, abdominal pain, or weakness.

Check out this link: Stopping soda intake is the most sensible thing to do. Eating apples and bananas and taking peptobismol and immodium would help. Take care! http://www.Livestrong.Com/article/508351-what-ingredient-is-in-coke-that-causes-diarrhea/#page=1.
