Diarrhea: Would stop imodium (loperamide)- if bacteria- imodium (loperamide) will prolong its stay in your intestine. Try probiotic and/ or active culture yogurt , as that replenishes the bacteria in the gut and simethicone that breaks up gas. Avoid dairy ( exclusive of yogurt),spicy foods, caffeine , alcohol, eat light for next 48 hours white rice ,toast bananas, apple sauce apple juice gatorade , tea, boiled chicken. f/u/ w/doc
