Start eating: the proper solid foods....applesauce..Rice Cereal...and try doubling the OTC (Over the counter) dose of Imodium (loperamide) AD for one or two doses ONLY take two Imodium (loperamide).... Keep your electrolytes up by drinking one of the electrolyte drinks !! Good Luck! and I hope this helps!
