Hi and thanks for the query.Loperamide or Immodium is reserved for diarrhea that is uncontrolled, chronic, bloody or with diarrhea that is more than 6 stools per day.If you think that the diarrhea is uncontrolled and causing dehydration then giving her a one capsule is alright. But please do consult her GP who is better aware of her current situation.
