The best (most natural) remedy is teaspoon mixture of water and a bit of corn starch. This will work almost immediately. Not too much or else it will constipate you! If you have chronic diarrhea, however, please see your doctor! ~ T Answer MEDICATION for diarrhea include- "Pepto-Bismal" (Bismuth subsalicylate) and "Imodium" (Loperamide hydrochloride"). My suggestion is TWO 2mg. tabs of "Imodium" (generic is cheaper!) at the first loose stool. Drink plenty of water and take ONE 2mg. tab at next loose stool; NOT TO EXCEED FOUR tabs. in 24 hr. Good Luck!! There is a specific medication called Imodium which is made to stop Diarrhea. It is over the counter and does work.. another way is just to stay away from milk and milk products and have some binding foods, rice, potatoes, etc: which will help bind you.
