Today, I found out that my doctor wasn't kidding when he said "sudden diarrhea may occur" with my new medication. I learned this while walking my dog a mile away from my house. FML

HauntedTwilight tells us more.

Hey, OP here :) I've never experienced any side effects from medication (until now), and when the doctor and I went over the side effects together he kind of chuckled when he said "sudden diarrhea may occur". The medication is cymbalta (anti-depressant) so I took it as a joke that an anti-depressant could cause such a side effect, and when he chuckled I really thought he was kidding. I was clearly wrong, haha. Luckily, I was able to bolt home before anything extremely bad happened. My dog enjoyed the quick run a lot more than I did. Still easily one of the most embarrassing days of my life! I've earned the nickname "Shitty pants" from my 61 year old father who is never going to let me forget this. Shitty situation all around! :P

Use the bushes. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

No shit it's going to stink it's... well it's shit.

Guys, thanks for stating the obvious.

Sorry OP. Definitely not your fault, but I'm pretty sure you're going to ask the doctor now about side effects for the rest of your life.

Today, I had diarrhea and so I went in some bushes. After about 7 minutes my ass was burning like no other. Guess who wiped with poison ivy? FML

she should've been carrying a bag, not for the dog when it *****.....but for her spontaneous urges

And now for the rest of the day you are glued to the toilet, waiting for your bowels to attack

Well at least you weren't hiking with people or something like that...

#11 in this case either would work. Your possessive as in 'make like the diarrhea you have', or you are, which is mildly redundant since the phrase 'make like' already implies that same idea.

Way to look stupid while trying to correct someone else. It's mostly cuz YOU'RE black.

I'll presume your doctor didn't stress the word "sudden" enough in his warning. Doctors are like that.

Always take a diarrhoea warning seriously. Inconvenient as it may be, the risk is just not worth it.

If you took all the side effect warnings that seriously, you wouldn't leave your house for the first few days after starting a new medication, and I'm pretty sure most people don't have time to take 2 days off work and sit on the couch on the chance they may have a side effect.

Did he say all of them? Nope, just the diarrhea. Way to rant about nothing.

#74 it still applies. Can't take two days off work every time you start new meds just in case you get diarrhoea lol.

At least you had some poop bags with you already. Hopefully on a quiet street with lots of bushes

I'm sorry, I guess this is just gonna have to be one of those things that you can't blame on the dog.
