  • HONESLTY YOU ARE SO EARLY JUST TAKE IMMODIUM. TAKING IT FOR TONIGHT WILL NOT REALLY HURT THEN YA CALL YOU DR IN THE MORNING AND THEY CAN TELL YOU OVER THE PHONE IF YOU CAN KEEP TAKING IT OR NEED TO COME IN FOR A PRESCRIPTION.

  • I'd call in the morning. Until then, try the BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, toast).

  • MAYLOX AND MYLANTA, NOT IMMODIUM (THAT GOES THROUGH TO THE PLACENTA)

  • Try eating some bread, rice or bananna's. Also yogurt is very good for your digestive system. Try those things and keep on drinking liquads. If you have any pedialite, that's good also.

  • OH TAKE PEPTO IF IT NORMALLY WORKS FOR YOU. I TOOK IT AND HAD NO PROBS. I TOOK LESS THAN THE RECCOMENDED DOSE.
