I am breastfeeding a 3 month old. I got food poisoning I think about five days ago and ever since have had the runs (excuse the details) every evening -- no matter what I eat. I'm in Russia so my choices aren't that great but I can either drink charcoal (I took something similar which didn't seem to work) or I've heard they sell Immodium here. I'm sort of worried if this goes on for too long and it doesn't seem to get any better on it's own.

Any suggestions, please!

Of course you don't want to become dehydrated but be careful because if something needs to leave your body (like a toxin from the food etc) you don't want to completly stop it with the immodium and keep it in your body. Lots of fluid and maybe the BRAT diet like for kids? Bananas rice apple sauce toast. Pepto? That is pretty mild and if you really have to go you will- Immodium seems to stop everything. Good luck and hope you feel better soon.
