Brief Answer:
Take imodium

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for your query.

You can take tab imodium 2 mg before sleeping and should be fine by tomorrow. If still not better then take another tablet by tomorrow afternoon. It is not an antibiotic. It is an antidiarheal. I just hope you do not have abdominal pain or bad loose motions. If so then dont take this medicine and get tests done.

Hope it helps.
