OK, my output is very liquid-y.  What can I do to remedy this?  How can I slow down the bowels so the small intestine can absorb more of the water?-is that even possible?  I've heard of people using immodium?  I don't want to eat more fiber, I just want less output

Ask doc about immodium--is sometimes effective for me but I use 2 small doses of codeine a day now. Lomotil works well for some folks too. I also find the following foods to be helpful: pasta, peanut butter, potatoes, pita chips (not whole wheat). good luck

Hi, I agree with Sammies  Immodium melts are quite good which you can get over the counter or Lopermide from the doc you could also try taking a couple of spoonfuls of apple sauce. Hope it soon settles down. Bev x

Matt -

I wish I could help. My output was always like peanut butter. It was so dry; it was difficult to pass. There are many foods that thicken stools...try marshmellows, peanut butter, pasta, bread, and such.

I hope you find the answers you seek.
