I took claritin and had diarrhea 8 & 11 hours later due to overeating, does that mean claritin got flushed out and wasted, too?

Vomiting and diarrhea due to overeating: how long should it last?

Overeating: One should not get diarrhea and vomiting from overeating. That is very unusual and implies very bad food. One could possibly throw up once or twice if you ate like a glutton, but diarrhea is not related. This sounds more like food poisoning. However, the fastest food poisoning does not come on for at least 12 hours. Most likely a gastroenteritis was brewing and coincided with a big meal. Read more

Sometimes this is due to food poisoning (toxins in food), rapid over-eating, certain food oils/ingredients that make bowels move, taking medications with laxative effects, etc... Read more

As a result there can be less of it in the stool and the stool then becomes "discolored" or white, gray, or pale. Note that eating all white foods can cause this as well. Read more
