Imodium Original Loperamide 2mg Capsules, 6 Capsules

Imodium Original Loperamide 2mg Capsules is a treatment that can ease short term diarrhoea and diarrhoea caused by IBS. It helps to reduce the number of times you need to go to the toilet, easing symptoms so you can feel better.

Imodium original capsules contain 2mg of the active ingredient Loperamide in every capsule. This active ingredient treats diarrhoea by slowing down your overactive bowel, which gives your body the time to absorb the water and salts that it usually loses when you have diarrhoea.

What the medicine is for

Imodium ® Original 2mg Capsules is used to treat two types of diarrhoea. The two types have a different age limits

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 capsules 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 Original Loperamide 2mg Capsules 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.
