Depends: That depends on the cause. In some cases, antibiotics or anti-parasitic drugs are needed. In others, it's just a matter of keeping hydrated until it runs its course.

Regain Control: The normal muscular activity of the intestinal tract is out of balance and needs assistance in regaining normal activity. Imodium (loperamide) is used for regaining this functional balance. See link: http://www.Imodium (loperamide).Com/.

BRAT diet: Diarrhea is best managed by drinking plenty of fluids and restricting fiber. The brat diet consists of bananas ( greener the better) , rice (white), applesauce, toast (white). Saltine crackers and bullion may also help. Also, avoid dairy as lactose intolerance is common. Good luck.
