Description

What are Loperamide 2mg Capsules?

Loperamide hydrochloride is a diarrhoea treatment that treats sudden, short-term attacks of diarrhoea. It can also be used to treat diarrhoea caused by irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

What causes diarrhoea?

Short-term diarrhoea is common and can easily be relieved with diarrhoea treatment. Whilst unpleasant, it isn’t usually anything to worry about. Possible causes of short-term diarrhoea attacks include:

  • Food allergy

  • Food intolerance

  • A viral infection, such as norovirus

  • A bacterial infection, such as E.coli

For some people, these attacks can be more frequent due to chronic conditions and therefore diarrhoea treatment is needed more often. These conditions can include:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

  • Inflammatory bowel disorders, such as Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis

  • Coeliac disease

How do loperamide capsules work?

These capsules contain 2mg of the active ingredient loperamide hydrochloride. Loperamide capsules work as an effective diarrhoea treatment by slowing down the muscle movements in your bowel, thus making it easier for your body to absorb fluids properly and relieve diarrhoea.

Uses / Instructions

  • The recommended dosage is two capsules to start treatment, followed by one capsule after each loose bowel movement.
  • You must not take loperamide capsules for diarrhoea attacks that last longer than 48 hours, and you must not take more than 6 capsules in a 24 hour period.
  • If you are an adult with IBS that has been diagnosed by your doctor, you may take loperamide capsules for up to 2 weeks, however you must not exceed the stated dose, take for an attack that lasts longer than 48 hours, or take more than 6 capsules in one day.
