Stop Powergyl!: Please do not give your infant this medicine for the loose motion. It is an anti-fungal and antibiotic that has no use in young infants! It is not uncommon for infants to have loose motions for 4 times, as long as he is well otherwise. If he has real diarrhea, follow these instructions:

Loperamide is safe: Yes, you could take Imodium (loperamide) over the counter, it is safe.

Possible infection). Make sure you drink plenty of water while on loperamide as well. ...Read more

Can you tell me how I can stop loose motion (diarrhoea)?

Can you tell me how I can stop loose motion (diarrhoea)?

Determine cause: If a patient has diarrhea, the important thing is to determine the cause - that way the treatment can be best directed. Food poisoning or 'gastroenteritis' is a common cause. In those cases, the illness is usually self limited and goes away within a few days. If it's something more, like a malabsorption syndrome, then you really need the help of a GI specialist or someone who can evaluate properly ...Read more
