More about Imodium
What is Imodium and what does it do?
Imodium is used to treat symptoms of diarrhoea. Imodium works by regulating bowel movements and promoting the proper absorption of fluids. By restoring the normal rhythm of the bowel, Imodium helps to relieve diarrhoea symptoms. Imodium is effective in treating both acute and chronic diarrhoea, and it can be used in adults and children over the age of 12 years.
How does Imodium work?
Diarrhoea occurs when the normal process of digestion in the small intestine is disrupted. In this process, food is typically broken down and its nutrients are absorbed. However, when diarrhoea sets in, the muscles move the digested food through the system too rapidly, leading to poor nutrient absorption.
Imodium's active ingredient, loperamide, counteracts this issue by slowing down the small intestine to its normal pace. Upon being absorbed in the wall of the small intestine, loperamide regulates the speed at which food moves through the system, allowing for proper nutrient absorption and reducing the frequency of bowel movements.
How long does Imodium take
Take Imodium promptly following your initial episode of diarrhoea to experience relief in just one hour, allowing your body to begin the recovery process sooner. Ensure that you stay hydrated by consuming ample amounts of fluids and/or utilizing a rehydration solution.
