Use Imodium for anxiety related diarrhea, stomach pain after taking. Can u suggest any alternative?

I use Imodium for anxiety related diarrhea prior to social activities but am getting stomach pains about 8-12 hours after taking one tablet. I am trying to understand the pain and then what to do about it. The stomach pain is lasting longer. I am 73, female, 5'4" 115 lbs. in good health. What could I use as an alternative to stop the diarrhea before it starts? Two questions..
