Hello,my name is Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi.
I understand your concern.
Some advice that I can give to you are:
-Take over-the-counter options include Imodium (loperamide) and Pepto-Bismol or Kaopectate (bismuth subsalicylate).
-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.
Hope it helps,
kind regards!
