How are antidiarrheal medications used to treat traveler's diarrhea?

ANSWER

An antidiarrheal medication, such as Lomotil or Imodium, can decrease the number of diarrheal stools but can also cause complications for people with serious infections. These drugs should not be used by anyone with a high fever or blood in their stools.
