Thanks : Thanks for your question. Diarrhea and abdominal (stomach) pain can be caused by a number of issues - anything from a viral illness that goes away on its own in a few days to something potentially more serious, requiring additional testing or prescription medication. It's impossible to recommend a specific treatment without knowing the cause of the problem, and sometimes simply taking medication over the counter to hid the symptoms can let a more serious problem get worse without seeking medical attention. I would recommend you call your doctor now and tell them what's happening. I would not recommend taking any over the counter medication without being evaluated to find out what's wrong. I hope this helps you. Good luck!
