Frequent urgent diarrhea

This question is for my Mom. She is having frequent urgent diarrhea (6-7 times per day). Not sure how "loose" the  bowel movement is. Claims no pain with the movement.

History: 82 yr old female, general good health, taking Crestor, Keppra, Celebrex, Actinol, linisopril HCL, recently widowed, last colonoscopy 2009 where dr said come back in 5 years. Last time in hospital was 2001 where a meningioma was removed (thus the Keppra). Total success on that.

Trying acidopholis,, Ensure, lactaid before milk products.

Thanks for any suggestions.
