Loperamide Hydrochloride 2mg Capsules (60 Capsules) - Generic equivalent of Imodium
Loperamide acts on opioid receptors that are found in the muscle lining the walls of the intestines. By acting on these receptors, loperamide reduces the muscular contractions of the intestine (peristalsis) that move food and faecal matter through the gut.
Loperamide therefore reduces the speed at which the gut contents are pushed through the intestines. This allows more time for water and electrolytes to be reabsorbed from the gut contents back into the body, and results in firmer and stools that are passed less frequently. Loperamide is therefore used to treat acute (sudden and short-lived) episodes of watery diarrhoea, and can be bought without a prescription for this purpose.
How to take Diarrhoea Relief - Loperamide Capsules:
Adults and children aged 12 and over, to treat sudden short-lived (acute) diarrhoea:

Do not use Diarrohea Relief - Loperamide Capsules: If you are allergic to loperamide or any other ingredients in this product In children under the age of 12 If your doctor has told you that you have a condition where slowing of the stomach or intestine should be avoided.
Constipation, Bloated tummy (particularly in children with sever dehydration or AIDS patients) Inflammation of the bowel (e.g. any form of colitis ) Loperamide should not be used on its own in acute dysentery, the symptoms of which may include blood in your stools and a high temperature. Patients aged under 12 years should not receive loperamide capsules unless prescribed by a doctor. If in doubt about any of the above, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Caution when taking this medicine:
If you suffer from liver disease, tell your doctor before taking any loperamide. You may need to be closely supervised during treatment and the dosage may have to be altered. Loperamide only treats the symptoms of diarrhoea. When you have diarrhoea, your body loses large amounts of fluid and salts. You should therefore replace this lost fluid by taking more liquids than you normally would.
Your pharmacist may also recommended that you use a special powder containing sugar and salts (known as oral rehydration therapy) to help your body replace the fluid and salts lost during diarrhoea. If your diarrhoea lasts for more than 24 hours, see your doctor. If your are taking loperamide to control episodes of diarrhoea associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome diagnosed by your doctor, you should return to him/her if the pattern of your symptoms changes. Also if your diarrhoea symptoms persist for more then two weeks, such as there is a need for continuous treatment during this time, then you should consult to your doctor.

Breast Feeding: Do not take loperamide if you are breast feeding as small amounts of medicine may get into your milk. You should talk to your doctor about suitable treatment. Other medicines: Always tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are unsure about taking any other medicines as you should not take any other antidiarrhoeal preparations whilst taking loperamide except for oral rehydration therapy. Driving or operating machinery: Use caution when driving or operating machinery if you feel dizzy, tired or sleepy after taking loperamide. You should carefully read all product packaging and labels prior to use.
