Hi,

As per your description,persistent diarrhea more than a week may require a proper evaluation to rule out infection.

Possible differential diagnosis may include Gastroenteritis,Irritable Bowel syndrome,Intestinal bacterial overgrowth,Intestinal parasitic infection Medicine induced.

So you should undergo stool analysis,blood work like CBC,Serum electrolytes.

Also try citrucel.

Peptobismol can be helpful.

Start a probiotic and yogurt.

And consult your doctor for a clinical exam.
