Benefits

  • For fast and effective diarrhoea relief in under an hour
  • On-the-go relief that’s convenient and discreet
  • Dissolve instantly on the tongue – no need to take with water

IMODIUM Instants melts are used to treat two types of diarrhoea.

Short-term diarrhoea
■ For adults and children aged 12 and over.
■ To treat attacks that last up to 48 hours.
■ If your attack lasts longer than 48 hours, talk to your doctor

IBS diarrhoea
■ For adults and young people aged 18 and over who have been diagnosed with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).
■ To treat attacks that last up to 48 hours.
■ You can use this medicine for up to 2 weeks for repeated attacks, but if any one attack lasts continuously for longer than 48 hours, talk to your doctor.

The tablets contain loperamide hydrochloride, a substance that helps reduce diarrhoea by slowing down an overactive bowel. This allows water and salts that are usually lost in diarrhoea to be absorbed by the body

What is diarrhoea and why do I get it?

Diarrhoea are common in adults, children and babies. They’re often caused by a stomach bug. They can be really uncomfortable and unpleasant, but fortunately, it isn’t usually something to worry about and, more often than not, it goes away in a few days. Some of the possible causes of diarrhoea include:

  • A food intolerance

  • A food allergy

  • Food poisoning

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

  • A viral infection, such as norovirus.

  • A bacterial infection, such as E.coli

  • A reaction to a medication

  • A bowel or intestinal disease

  • Coeliac disease

Importance Rehydration therapy when you have Diarrhoea

Your body can lose large amounts of fluids and salts when you have diarrhoea. You need to replace the fluid by drinking more liquid than usual. Ask your pharmacist about rehydration therapy to replace lost salts. This is especially important for children and frail or older people

How does Imodium Instants work?

This medicine contains Loperamide Hydrochloride which belongs to a group of medicines called antidiarrhoeals, which act to relieve the symptoms of sudden, short term diarrhoea (“acute” diarrhoea). It works by making the stools (“poo”) more solid and less frequent.

It can be used to relieve short term diarrhoea in adults and children aged 12 years and over.

It can also be used by adults of 18 years and over who have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which has been previously diagnosed by a doctor, to relieve short term diarrhoea associated with it.

Do not take this medicine…
■ If you have ever had a bad reaction to any of the ingredients.
■ If it is for a child aged under 12 (or under 18 for an IBS patient).

tablets immediately and contact your doctor.
■ If you suffer from liver disease.

■ quinidine (used to treat abnormal heart rhythms or malaria).
■ oral desmopressin (used to treat excessive urination).
■ itraconazole or ketoconazole (used to treat fungal infections).
■ gemfibrozil (used to treat high cholesterol).
If you are unsure about any of the medicines you are taking, show the
bottle or pack to your pharmacist.
If any of these applies to you (now or in the past), talk to a doctor or
pharmacist.
Pregnancy or breast-feeding
■ If you are pregnant, think you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy: ask
your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking this medicine.
■ If you are breast-feeding do not take this medicine. Small amounts may
get into your milk. Talk to your doctor about a suitable treatment.
Special warnings about this medicine
■ This medicine may make you feel dizzy, tired or sleepy. You may feel less
alert, feel faint or pass out. If you’re affected do not drive or use machines.
■ Your body can lose large amounts of fluids and salts when you have
diarrhoea. You need to replace the fluid by drinking more liquid than usual.

Some of the ingredients can cause problems
■ This medicine contains 0.750 mg of Aspartame (E951) which is equivalent
to 0.055 mg/mg. Aspartame is a source of phenylalanine. It may be harmful
if you have phenylketonuria (PKU), a rare genetic disorder in which
phenylalanine builds up because the body cannot remove it properly.
■ Mint flavour contains traces of sulphites. This may rarely cause severe
hypersensitivity reactions and bronchospasm.
■ This medicine contains less than 0.00003 mg of alcohol (ethanol) in each
tablet. The small amount of alcohol in this medicine will not have any
noticeable effects.
■ This medicine contains 0.00066 mg benzyl alcohol in each dose (2 mg)
which is equivalent to 0.00033 mg/mg. Benzyl alcohol may cause allergic
reactions. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice if you have liver or
kidney disease, or if pregnant or breast feeding. This is because large
amounts of benzyl alcohol can buildup in your body and may cause side
effects (called “metabolic acidosis”).
■ This medicine contains less than 1 mmol sodium (23 mg) per tablet, that
is to say essentially ‘sodium-free’.
Extra warnings for IBS patients
Use only if your doctor has previously diagnosed IBS
