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.
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.
