Diarrhoea Treatment & Spotting 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.

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.

Despite what many people think, experts agree that there’s no advantage to letting diarrhoea run its course. That’s because your body loses essential fluids and salts and doesn’t absorb all the nutrients you need from the food you eat. Instead it’s best to treat early and help get your body 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.
