Customer Question

Have been having diarrhea in my sleep for a week ever since eating a bunch of fiber gummies. It's like every time I pass gas something comes out. A few days earlier I ate a questionable hamburger (very rare) but wasn't till I ate buncha fiber gummies a week ago that this started

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
That is concerning.
Since imodium is not working, this is likely infection related diarrhea.
Hamburger can cause this.
And symptoms can start later when you ate the fiber gummies, although gummies are not the direct cause.
You should see your doctor to get stool tests to rule out any infection.
metronidazole is an antibiotic effective against this problem.
You can start a probiotic also--available over the counter.
Florastor is a good probiotic containing saccharomyces boulardii helps to prevent diarrhea by driving out bad bacteria.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
