Uses
Imodium (Loperamide Hydrochloride) is a medicine which treats diarrhoea (it is often prescribed to treat traveller's diarrhoea). Another use for this drug is reducing the amount of stools in patients who have an ileostomy (a medical procedure involving re-routing the bowel). Doctors also prescribe it to patients affected by inflammatory bowel disease. This drug works by slowing down digestion, which gives the body time to absorb more nutrients and fluid from the food eaten, and also relieves diarrhoea.

Dosage and Administration
Imodium (Loperamide Hydrochloride) capsules are taken orally. Follow your doctor's instructions, and never take more than the prescribed amount. Adult patients are usually told to take it straight away after each instance of diarrhoea. Treatment of chronic diarrhoea may require a dosage schedule, which can involve taking it once per day or more. Patients are advised to tell their doctor if no improvement in symptoms is noticed after 2 days of treatment (or 10 days if chronic diarrhoea is being treated). It is recommended that you drink sufficient water or other drinks, so as to replace the fluids lost as a result of diarrhoea.

Side effects
Taking Imodium (Loperamide Hydrochloride) tablets may cause side effects, such as:

  • A dry mouth
  • Drowsiness
  • Constipation
  • Itchiness affecting the skin
  • Stomach pain or discomfort

There is a slight risk of severe and potentially harmful reactions occurring as a result of treatment with this drug. If you suffer from any serious side effects, it is necessary to immediately seek medical attention or to consult your doctor. Some possible examples include bloating of the stomach, bloody diarrhoea or a worsening of diarrhoea symptoms. In addition to the reactions just mentioned, other serious adverse effects may occur.

Precautions
Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Imodium (Loperamide Hydrochloride) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.
