  • I would call the doctor just to be sure, but I think Imodium is on the list of medicines I am aloud to take, so I wouldn't see why children's Imodium would be any different.

  • Yea, but call your doctor first. Immodium stops diarrhea and depending upon why you're having it, sometimes it's best to get it out of your body. For example, if it's from a virus, your doctor will want you to just let it run it's course rather than keeping it inside of you.
