If you do get diarrhea, please see your doctor immediately if you show signs of dehydration: dry mouth, sunken eyes, decreased production of urine, or lethargy; if you have profuse, explosive, watery diarrhea or pass blood; or if you have vomitting and aren't able to keep any fluids down.
See my previous post on managing diarrhea.
