Long story. I had worked at my cabin I was around some rodent droppings. 4 days later had lEpisode loose bowels. Went to my dr said not to worry. Went to urgent care said there was something going around. So I took Imodium next day was traveling FL. Okay But have had to continue pepto been eating very little. Okay if I take pepto but first bowel movement of day yesterday today okay but then have an episode of loose bowels feel okay no temp. Am. Suppose to leave in couple hrs to fly to VA for my granddaughters bday. How long can u stay on the pesto brown tongue. Right now I feelokaybut not eating that much and have lost few pds.
Expert:  Dr. R. Bora replied 1 year ago.
I think you are dehydrated from the loose bowels. You need to drink 3 to 4 liters of water daily. Along with that, take gatorade to replenish the lost electrolytes.

Stop taking the pepto and take imodium only.

Take only a bland diet like toast, soft brown rice, apple sauce etc.


I hope my answer has helped you.

How long intake the Imodium
Expert:  Dr. R. Bora replied 1 year ago.
Hello Marcia.

You take imodium once in a day and if the loose stool stops, you should not take it again. But if the loose stool continues, you should take it for one or two days more.

If you get loose stools for more than 4 to5 days, you will need a stool culture for bacterial infection with an antibiotic course.


I hope my answer has helped you.
