Stop probiotic: If the diarrhea is recent onset, stop,or,change the probiotic (these can produce loose stools). Eat bananas, cheese, fiber foods and stop eating fruits for now. Drink water and/or electrolyte solutions to maintain hydration. Your doctor can offer meds to,slow,the bowel if needed. Good luck
