I've had "urgent" diarreah for the last week. My mom finally gave me some immodium yesterday and things didn't stop until this morning. I took 2 first, then 1 after each episode, about 8 total yesterday. Today I took 2 in the morning, then one in the afternoon. Will this hold me out until tomorrow? Things seem to be stopped up at the moment, which is ok. I'm going to go ahead and take one more for tonight just to be sure. My rear end just needs a break from all the action. I also haven't eaten in the past 2 days because of loss of appetite and fear of making things worse. Is this making it worse? I'm going to buy calcium carbonate when I get paid (next thursday) and hopefully that will balance me out, but until then I'm assuming it's ok to take immodium daily. I'm afraid I'll run out though, and I have no money to buy more. Any advice on what to do until payday?
