Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, diarrhea actually self limiting symptoms and does not need any treatment as you are taking some drugs for this in my opinion you need to stop taking this drugs this could some time increase the problems this drugs could develops the "paralytic ileus" and other serious side effect too, no need to worry when you stop the medicine, take care and have nice day.
