How can diarrhea be treated?

My mother is 93 and just started ramipril monday. She has had 2 episodes of very loose bowels where her diaper was full of feces. She is a diabetic. We have given her g2 to drink and electrolyte drink. Does the loose bowels stop after she is on it awhile.

Hello,my name is dr.Dorina Gurabardhi.I understand your concern.
Some advices that I can give to you are:     
-Use over-the-counter options like Imodium (loperamide)
-take probiotics
- Take frequent, small sips of water or a rehydration drink and small bites of salty crackers.
-Begin eating mild foods the next day or sooner, depending on how you feel.
