It is unlikely to be caused by the Claritin D. Have you eaten anything unusual? Has anyone else around you had similar symptoms?
Drink plenty of fluid to avoid becoming dehydrated.
Foods like rice, dry toast, and bananas can sometimes help with diarrhea.
Avoid over-the-counter antidiarrhea medications unless specifically instructed to use one by your doctor. Certain infections can be made worse by these drugs. When you have diarrhea, your body is trying to get rid of whatever food, virus, or other bug is causing it. The medicine interferes with this.
Get plenty of rest.
You should see your doctor if:
You have blood or pus in your stools or your stool is black
