After battling two different flus/viruses, I can finally narrow down the remedies that actually worked for me, and there was one: **Imodium A-D**. From now on, I won't even waste my time experimenting with other medicines because this one worked great for me. Effectiveness Worked great even when not taken as directed (with food, versus on an empty stomach). Ease of Use Simply take with water. Immediacy I can't remember exactly how long it took to be effective, but I know that it wasn't long, and once it started working, I was cured.
