    Ditto! Drink lots of liquids and try and stick to the BRAT diet plus some protein. Immodium just keeps the bacteria inside and you want them to leave.
    Exactly, keep that crap flowing!

    I stopped the Imodium and ate 2 bananas and 1 applesauce yesterday, and had 2 servings of citrucel (1 tablespoon mixed in 3 oz of water) and I had a huge accident overnight.

    My stool is still very soft and loose, more like mushy.. 2 days left of flagyl and vanco and still on the florastor...... started having some spasms return in the middle of the night like when I had full blown C. Diff. except not nearly as bad.. scared it;s coming back..

    Help, please!

    I guess you have posted this question in two areas. C Diff is difficult to get rid of and you should get re-tested after completion of this medication to see if it is out of your system. Immodium is not recommended. Keep drinking liquids BRAT diet (bananas applesauce, rice, toast) bland stuff.

    Hang in there.
