Why treat diarrhoea?

If you suffer from diarrhoea, it’s often better to treat it early. By treating diarrhoea, you can start to feel better and get on with your day.

It's best to treat diarrhoea early

A survey found that 84% of us feel weak and tired when suffering from diarrhoea. This is no surprise when you consider the resulting loss of important fluids and salts from our body.

IMODIUM® contains an active ingredient called Loperamide, which works in harmony with your body to help restore its natural rhythm, gently slowing digestion back down to a normal pace and helping to resume the normal absorption of fluids.

What about rehydration treatments?

Oral rehydration solutions replace lost fluids and salts and help to prevent dehydration caused by diarrhoea. IMODIUM® works to stop diarrhoea and can do so in less than 1 hour; IMODIUM® can be used (to stop diarrhoea) together with an oral rehydration solution (to rehydrate you).

How to treat diarrhoea

There are three key things you can do to lessen the symptoms of diarrhoea:

  • Stay hydrated by drinking fluids or using oral rehydration therapy
  • Eat balanced meals regularly
  • Use IMODIUM®*

*If symptoms last longer than 48 hours, you develop a fever over 38°C, or you have blood or mucus in your stools, you should seek medical advice.

It makes sense to stop diarrhoea and start feeling better.

IMODIUM® Original capsules can stop diarrhoea in one dose.
