I am sorry you are not feeling well.
How long have you had the runs?
i had them for about a week
Thank you for yoru reply.
Usually when Lomotil and the like do not help there is something such as a bacterial infection causing it.
Your doctor will need to check a stool specimen to see if it is caused by a bacterial, parasite etc.
If this is the case you will be prescribed an antibiotic or other prescription depending on the cause. It should them clear up after about 24 hours on the meds.
You could have a intestinal infection called C- difficil which is contagious so be sure to wash your hand good after toileting.
I hope you feel better soon. Please get in to see your doctor tomorrow so you don't get dehydrated.
Best Wishes to you,
I wish there was something. Hopefully the results will be back quickly.
