"... Your treatment will depend on the condition causing your chronic diarrhea. (Your doctor is the best person to talk to.)
Treatment may include any of the following:
Oral rehydration therapy: You may need to drink more liquids to replace body fluids lost through diarrhea. You may also need to drink an oral rehydration solution (ORS). An ORS has the right amounts of sugar, salt, and minerals in water to replace body fluids.
Antidiarrheal medicine: This medicine is given to decrease the amount of diarrhea you are having. Some of these medicines coat the intestine (bowel) and make the BM less watery. Other antidiarrheal medicine works by slowing down how fast the intestine is moving."
