Help! Need Diarrhea Relief

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm going on day 4 of diarrhea. Yesterday it seemed to be getting a bit better, but not anymore. I may have eaten something wrong to cause this, but I'm not sure. I've taken the questionable foods out of my diet, taken out milk for now (except for some greek yogurt with active cultures) and spent yesterday eating rice, veggies, rice Chex and banana. I have not taken Immodium because I may be pregnant. During my first pregnancy I had diarrhea and my midwife said I couldn't take anything. I've had to switch to a new clinic now and called there yesterday and a midwife said I can take Immodium, but when I google it online it makes me nervous to take it. Any ideas to get rid of this without taking medicine?

Sorry that you are having a rough time of it! I hope you feel better soon.

I would dump the rice chex. They are not made on dedicated equipment or a dedicated facility. Other than that, Google the BRAT diet.

If diarrhea just won't stop, I find it helpful to go on clear fluids for a day to let everything settle down. Broth, Jello, sugared soda for calories, and Pedialyte to help replenish your electrolytes are all good. I am usually able to add back white rice and applesauce the next day and maybe a little stewed chicken in the evening. I have to stay away from fibrous veggies until everything has settled back down.

Gluten-free Rice Chex are not made in a dedicated facility, but they ARE made on dedicated equipment.

Here is an old post. Nothing has changed.

You should call your OB/GYN if it continues in the morning. Tell them you may be preggers and ask what to do. They will know what is safe for you to take.
