Hi,

Hi,
I understand your concern.
As per your description,you should take some other self care remedies like
Maintain a good hydration with Gatorade.
Start citrucel and Probiotic.
You should eat yogurt,banana.
You can take Imodium 4 mg tablet after 6 hours also.
If your symptoms'll not improve in a day then I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
Possible differential diagnosis may include bacterial or parasitic infection,Colitis.
A stool test, blood work would help to plan treatment.
Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.

If your symptoms'll not improve then see a doctor at ER to prevent complications like dehydration.

Monitor your blood pressure before taking your anti-hypertensive medicine for high blood pressure.

Hope this helps.
