Stop Imodium: It is not safe to take Imodium for prolonged periods. See your doctor who may send the stool for culture. You may need antibiotics. In the meantime keep up your fluid intake so you do not get dehydrated

Tesectan, Inteflora: Good morning Stop the imodium and ask your pharmacist for Tesectan and Inteflora and take electrolite balanced fluides. If this does not resolve you will have to see your doctor for possibly some Ciprofloxasin treatment.
