My wife is pregnant with our first baby and is having bad diarrhea, does anyone know if it is safe to take imodium to help? She is only about 6 weeks pregnant.

Here is a link of medications safe for pregnancy it does say that imodium is safe but only after 12 weeks of pregnancy. Have her call her Dr and see if there is anything she can take.
