For surviving children under age 5 who had diarrhea in the past 2 weeks, DIAGIVANTIM (H15A) indicates, in response to an open-ended question, whether the child was given an antimotility drug to treat this illness. Such drugs slow down the movement of the gut, allowing more water to be absorbed back into the body and resulting in firmer stools and fewer symptoms of diarrhea.
