    Swim is going to a friends house party and is wondering if he would be ok drinking with an upset stomach, he's had the runs yesterday and today, he's taking loperamide now to stop the runs, also what would be the best, least harmful for the stomach thing he could drink?
    Thanks,
    Narg

    If you have the runs then i woudnt drink as your problems can cause dehydration.
    So really you should be drinking plenty of water.

    If your monkey has diarrhoea then he shouldn't be going to parties until at least 48 hours after his last squit - this is how diseases are spread & his mates won't thank him for a dose of norovirus or whatever caused it.

    As for drinking, in moderation. Stay hydrated though - as stated above diarrhoea dehydrates quite savagely.

    Wash your hands a lot (No wait, that probably would have helped preventing it instead).

    Second on the hydrating. Water, salts and sugars
