I have called the ped, but she's not our regular doc (we were out of town when she got sick) and I'm waiting to hear back. The receptionist commented that she thought diarreha was a side effect, which I thougt was rather silly. I told her that it was, but I was worried b/c last time she took this, she ended up dehydrated and in the hospital (they thought it was rotavirus then).
I'm frustrated and stressed sitting here waiting for them to call back. At what point should I call my regular ped?
