A 23-year-old male asked:
does anti-diarrhea medicine act similarly to dietary fiber? would a soluble fiber supplement be as effective?

No: Most antidiarrheals do not provide fiber in the diet. A water soluble fiber supplement would make the stool less watery but might not decrease the frequency of the stool. Immodium, should decrease the frequency of the stool.
