You can get Buscopan tablets, as well as Imodium from your pharmacy. Take two Buscopan tablets every six hours. This should stop the cramping and a single course of Imodium should stop the diarrhea. A diet with a high fibre content should also calm your stomach. If this does not work and if there is a fever present, you will have to consult your doctor immediately.
