What is the best over the counter medication for diarrhea and stomach cramping? The cramping is very painful and the diarrhea is very persistent.. Like every 3 minutes.

In brief: Imodium (loperamide)

Imodium (loperamide) is the standard but please consult with your primary doctor before use.
Not all diarrheal illnesses can be treated safely with such medications. Sometimes it's best to let the diarrhea run its natural course
