When you have the flu, do you wait it out or?

Do you take Imodium or other medication right away?

  • I ride it out. I don't believe in stopping anything from running it's course. If it wants out of your body, you need to let it.. I don't believe in using over the counter meds to treat colds/flu etc. It's just a buffer, and doesn't treat the problem.

  • PI let it go for about a half day, then I'm downing Imodium like I own stock.

  • I let it go to a point. Once I'm able to keep something down, I'll start taking probiotics.
