What Is Loperamide?

Loperamide effectively treats diarrhoea by slowing down an overactive bowel. This allows more water and salts to be absorbed into the body and helps to reduce the frequency and urgency of bowel movements.

How Does Loperamide Work?

Loperamide slows down your intestines, giving your body more time to absorb fluids and nutrients. This helps make your stools firmer and reduces diarrhoea.

Who Can Use Loperamide?

Loperamide Capsules are suitable for most adults with short-term diarrhoea or IBS-related diarrhoea. However, you should not use Loperamide if you:
  • Are allergic to loperamide hydrochloride or any other ingredients listed in this medicine.
  • Have severe diarrhoea after taking antibiotics.
  • Are experiencing a flare-up of an inflammatory bowel condition like ulcerative colitis.
  • Are constipated or have a swollen stomach.
  • Have acute dysentery with blood in your stools and a high fever.
Speak to your GP or pharmacist if you have liver disease, diarrhoea lasting more than 48 hours, or severe diarrhoea causing significant fluid and electrolyte loss. If you’re still unsure whether Loperamide is suitable for you, read the patient information leaflet or speak to a medical professional.
