Diarrhoea Treatment & Symptoms

It’s important to learn why and when it’s best to treat diarrhoea, so you can get all the information you need and feel more confident in treating yours. After all, you don’t want to suffer when you can help stop diarrhoea and get on with your day.

We all get stressed now and then. Sometimes, diarrhoea can be your body’s way of telling you that you’re under pressure, but diarrhoea can also make life even more difficult.

To help manage stress, try guided breathing exercises or other meditative techniques. Maintaining good health with a balanced diet and physical activity can also help to stabilise your mood.

There are many reasons why people get diarrhoea, from travellers' diarrhoea and stomach bugs to IBS. Each one is different but they can all disrupt your life.

Treating diarrhoea helps stop your body from losing essential fluids and salts. This helps prevent dehydration and allows your gut to return back to its normal rhythm.

Diarrhoea can affect people of all ages and almost everyone experiences a bout of it at some point in their lives. IMODIUM<sup>®</sup> is suitable for adults, including those with IBS, and children over 12.
