Dioralyte Relief Blackcurrant is recommended for the replacement of essential body water and salts in the treatment of acute diarrhoea. During diarrhoea the body loses water and salts and Dioralyte Relief Blackcurrant replaces these whilst at the same time helping watery stools return to normal more rapidly. Early use is important to avoid dehydration, especially in the young and elderly.

  • Clinically proven to reduce diarrhoea and dehydration.
  • Pleasant tasting.
  • Powder for oral solution.

  • Empty contents of one Dioralyte sachet into a glass
  • Add 200ml of fresh drinking water *
  • Stir well until dissolved

For infants, or where drinking water is not available, the water should be freshly boiled then cooled.

The solution should be prepared immediately before being taken. Any solution remaining after 1 hour should be thrown away unless it is kept in a refrigerator in which it can be kept for up to 24 hours.

In the early stages of diarrhoea all foods (except breast milk in breast fed infants) should be stopped, but as illness improves, usually after 24 to 48 hours the normal diet should be gradually resumed.


Infants up to the age of 2:

Usual dose is one to one and a half times the normal 24 hour feed volume of Dioralyte.

Children aged 2 to 12:

One sachet dissolved in 200ml of water after each loose bowel motion.

Adults including elderly persons:

The powder in one sachet dissolved in 200ml of drinking water or the contents of two sachets dissolved in 400ml of drinking water after each loose bowel motion.  When vomiting is present with the diarrhoea it is recommended that small amounts be taken frequently.  However, it is important that the whole of the required volume of Dioralyte be taken.  If symptoms persist and no improvement is seen after 24-48 hours medical advice must be sought.

After using Dioralyte

After using Dioralyte you should not normally experience any undesirable effects. However, should you notice anything unusual tell your doctor or pharmacist.


Ask your doctor before taking this medicine if:

  • you have persistent vomiting
  • you are suffering from and intestinal obstruction (which may give you severe pain or swelling)
  • you have kidney or liver trouble
  • you have diabetes
  • you are on a low sodium or potassium diet
Always ensure that each sachet is dissolved in 200ml (approx. 7fl oz) of water

If more than the recommended amount of water is used, the solution will become too weak and not have the most effective concentration for water and salt absorption.

If less that the recommended amount of water is used, the solution will be too concentrated and give rise to water loss instead of absorption.

Use in Children and Infants- This medicine may be used in children and infants but care must be taken with the amount given.  Infants under the age of 2 must be seen by a doctor as soon as possible.


Active ingredients – glucose 3.56g, sodium chloride 0.47g, potassium chloride 0.30g and disodium hydrogen citrate 0.53g.  Other ingredients – silicon dioxide, saccharin sodium, lemon/ lime flavour (citrus packs only), blackcurrant flavour (blackcurrant packs only).
