I take two when I travel (nothing says comfort like diarehha in an airplane bathroom overseas
), and that seems to do the trick.
I might get a prescription from your doctor, he knows what won't be bad in the long run for your intestines. I wouldn't go above the recommended number on the box, because you just might have to take exlax to be able to go to the bathroom again. Immodium is good, but that stuff can really mess up the intestinal cycle.
Skip coffee or caffine, and any acidic/spicy foods. That might help your diarehha not be too bad. I used to take Psyllium seed tablets, the fiber binded me up for a day and I didn't need any Immodium.
The tablets are at any health food store, or at Eckards probably
