History of IMODIUM®

IMODIUM® was created by Dr.Janssen and launched in 1973. Dr. Janssen was the man who first came up with the values that IMODIUM® is known to stand for today: he wanted to deliver trustworthy and effective relief to people suffering from diarrhoea and ease the disruption it can cause to people’s lives. And we’ve been doing just that for over 40 years.
