It is recommended to take enough fluid to compensate increased loss of water (caused by Diarrhea), also you can take adsorbents like Smecta also there are several medicines available without a prescription that may help with diarrhea.
These diarrhea medicines include loperamide ( Imodium® ) and bismuth subsalicylate ( Pepto-Bismol ® and Kaopectate ® ).
Loperamide slows down the speed of fluids moving through your intestines. Bismuth subsalicylate works by balancing the way fluid moves through your intestines.
However, these medicines should be taken only when diarrhea is not caused by bacteria or viruses.
