may be a very very good choice to control loose stools. The usual duration for this is 5-7 days.
The other possible cause is an antibiotic induced loose stools. A course of prebiotics
like sporolac may help. Also avoidance of antibiotics that caused loose motion
Best also to test a stool routine and microscopy
