Specializes in Pediatrics

After taking antibiotics, there can be bacterial overgrowth of Clostridium difficile. You may wish to see your doctor to be tested. Imodium is not a good idea unless you are going on a long train or plane ride or similar loss of access to a toilet. Drink plenty of fluids, increase your fiber intake. Probiotics would be a safer alternative to Imodium.
