Brief Answer:

Yes.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Diarrhoea is a common side effect of Culturelle and It is recommended to take Immodium while taking Culturelle to decrease the chances of developing diarrhoea.

Since you are discontinuing the medication, then you should take Immodium for 3-7 days until diarrhea stops.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
