Long Lasting Diarrhea

A little over two weeks ago my roommate complained that he had diarrhea. I thought it maybe was food poisoning or something else they ate. Their diarrhea continued for longer than a week, just this past week i had started experienceing the same thing in my stool. It has been a week and im still experiencing diarrhea. What should i do to fix this problem? Is common to have diarreha for long period of time? What should i do?

In the case of food/water poisoning long lasting diarrhea is usually caused by intestinal parasites. You would need to have a stool test for parasites and, if positive, take appropriate drugs by prerscription.
