Well, you could check out www.kellymom.com for drugs that are safe to take.

I'm of the school of thought that you shouldn't take anything unless you absolutely HAVE to. Also, your body has the runs for a reason - to get nasty bugs out of you so stopping yourself up keeps the bugs in. Of course I have no idea how long you've been sick or how long you've had the runs. This is just my as another BF Mama and a registered nurse.

I personally would increase my intake of clear fluids and get LOADS of rest if possible. At my house we've been sick for weeks because there's a nasty virus going around. We're just starting to get better so hang in there.

Yes, definitely stay hydrated. Also, do you have any probiotics around? Take those to help your digestive system.
