Description

Imodium capsules are used to treat:

  • Sudden short-lived (acute) attacks of diarrhoea in adults and children over 8 years of age
  • Long-lasting (chronic) diarrhoea in adults

How Imodium capsules work:

Imodium capsules contain a medicine called loperamide hydrochloride. It belongs to a group of medicines which helps reduce diarrhoea by slowing down an overactive bowel. It also helps the body to absorb more water and salts from the bowel.

Directions

Adults and children over 12 years of age:

Take 2 capsules initially, followed if required, by 1 capsule after every further loose bowel movement, up to a maximum of 8 capsules per day.

  • If your diarrhoea lasts for more than 24 hours, consult your doctor.

Diarrhoea associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS):

  • If your doctor has diagnosed you with IBS, take 2 capsules to control an episode of diarrhoea.
  • Further episodes may be controlled by taking 1 or 2 capsules according to severity, up to a maximum of 8 capsules per day.
  • If your symptoms change or your acute symptoms persist for more than 2 weeks, consult your doctor.
