I am 65 yo & have had diarerrea for 4 days & night. I do not feel bad. But my going to the bathroom is urgent & uncontrollable. I'd had nothing to eat or drink but gatorade, water, a little chicken noodle soup. I am diabetic. My levels are staying good. Any suggestions.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: No MD yet. I take a boat load of medications & I planned to call my MD in the morning. but I saw your web page & thought I'd take a chance. I take 8 - 10 psych meds per day, Attenolol of BP, Statin for Cholesterol, Nexum for Acid Reflux, Synthroid for Thyroid
, ... I'm sure there are a couple of more that I can't think of right now. I did have a couple of days during the past few weeks that I forgot my afternoon meds, could that have messed up my system?
