: My elderly mother is suffering from constant diarrhea and she desperately needs help. She has been diagnosed in the past with IBS. We have tried Imodium AD, Lomotil, etc. Do you have any suggestions on what to try next? She has lost so much weight, is very tired and getting weaker. I am at my wits end as how I can help her. Any suggestions will be sincerely appreciated.

Dear Danielle,
I hope she is under the care of a Doctor.Keep plenty of fluids in her--you have to make sure she does not get dehydrated,potassium is essential. As you may know diarrhea can happen alone or as a symptom of another problem.Possible causes can range from food poisoning,drugs, intestinal parasites or food that the body just cannot tolerate. I suggest taking Charcoal tablets ---every hour and don't mix with other medicine.They absorb toxins from the GI tract. Take psyllium caps to help stool formation(4 at bedtime). In an emergency you may try Questran ---you have to ask your doctor about it since it's a presciption item.Eat yogurt with extra acidophilus frequently it replaces lost friendly bacteria. Hope this helps!!
God Bless---Harry
