In brief: Loperamide

From a basic, over the counter anti-diarrheal perspective, loperamide worlks great.
It is important however, to diagnose the real source of the diarrhea, from a simple food intolerance or viral infection to something more severe.

In brief: Imodium (loperamide)

Imodium (loperamide) is an excellent over the counter treatment for diarrhea.
Most diarrhea will resolve in 1-2 days without treatment. For chronic diarrhea (lasting more than a week), bloody diarrhea, or diarrhea associated with high fever, vomiting and weight loss you should see your doctor.
