How Do I Control Diarrhea if I Have Multiple Sclerosis?
Drink 8 or more cups of liquids per day. Add 1 to 2 cups of liquids to the daily 8 cups for every episode of loose, watery stool you have to replace losses. Try water, lemonade or fruit-flavored drinks, fruit or vegetable juice, broth, milk, or cream soup.
Talk with your doctor or dietitian about increasing or decreasing the amount of fiber you eat.
Eat soft foods that contain large amounts of liquid, such as sherbet, yogurt, and pudding.
Ask your doctor whether adjusting your medications might help relieve the diarrhea, but do not change your medications without first talking to your doctor.
Don't take over-the-counter (nonprescription) drugs for diarrhea without talking to your doctor.
