Imodium Original Capsules
Contrary to popular belief, Imodium doesn't work by stopping your bowel movements. Instead, it contains an active ingredient called 'loperamide', which works by calming your digestive system down. This helps your digestive system get back to normal, leading to firmer stools. By restoring this delicate balance, you can feel better sooner and have the confidence to get on with your day.
Imodium Original capsules are used to treat acute (short-lived) attacks of diarrhoea, helping stools become more solid and less frequent.
- The active ingredient is Loperamide Hydrochloride (2 mg). The other ingredients are Lactose, Maize Starch, Talc,
- Magnesium Stearate, Capsule Cap (Titanium Dioxide, Yellow Ferric Oxide, Indigotindisulphonate Sodium, Gelatin) and Capsule body (Titanium Dioxide, Black Ferrous Oxide, Indigotindisulphonate Sodium, Erythrosin, Gelatin).
- Over 12 years: 2 capsules initially followed, if necessary, by one capsule after each loose bowel movement. Maximum 8 capsules in 24 hours.
