Drinking energy drinks give me diarrhea, & a lot of people I know get diarrhea from it as well. What ingredient in energy drinks can give you diarrhea?
Lots of stuff: Many ingredients in energy drinks can cause diarrhea; different people have different sensitivities, so it’s hard to say which one actually causes it in any individual.

One team doctor told me that those big energy drink barrels you see on the sidelines at games are usually full of water, not the advertised product. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Pedialyte is formulated with just the right amounts of fluids and electrolytes to replace what you need. Coconut water has almost no electrolytes, and many of the gatorades have way to much sugars for use in gastroenteritis. However, with an adult or older child, any fluids are better than none and resultant dehydration. ...Read more

My boyfriend drank a whole gallon of orange juice in less than 2 hours and now he has diarrhea. Did him drinking that give him diarrhea?
High fructose load: If their was high fructose corn syrup added to the orange juice this could cause overload and produce diarrhea because the fructose is not completely digested /absorbed. This causes water to be secreted into colon. Other sugars also could act similarly. If diarrhea persists for more than 24 hours or is associated with fevers consult your doctor ...Read more

My 2yr old has virus. Vomiting and upset stomach. The doc called in a suppository. Can I give 1/4 teaspoon of Imodium (loperamide) also ?
I wouldn't: That medicine is bitter and of little use at this age. It is likely to trigger more vomiting. I would concentrate on getting things with fluid value into the kid. Things like apple sauce and pedialyte are appropriate.Making sure that the kids takes in enough to pee every 6 hrs is your main goal. ...Read more
My four year old for stomach flu, vomiting and diarrhea, it's going around. Can i give him promethazine or loperamide?
Maybe: Those meds could be used in a child that age but not without speaking to a medical provider first to confirm the necessity and the correct dose. In many cases of stomach flu all that is needed is to maintain fluid balance using the proper replacement fluids. Often all that is needed is water but larger volumes of loss may require electrolyte replacement. Know and look for signs of dehydration. ...Read more
