How Loperamide works

Loperamide reduces the spasm in the bowel and reduces the frequency of diarrhoea. It works best if started early in the diarrhoea. During diarrhoea, fluid is lost from the body. Fluids should be replaced by drinking 3-4 litres or 6 pints of fluid a day.

The antibiotic azithromycin also speeds recovery in travellers' diarrhoea.

In addition the anti-sickness tablet Avomine can be taken to reduce fluid loss and discomfort.

Cautions

Loperamide should not be taken:

  • When diarrhoea starts after a course of antibiotic
  • Where there has been prolonged constipation before diarrhoea starts
  • Where the diarrhoea contains blood and there is a high fever
  • Not suitable for children
  • Best avoided in pregnancy and breast-feeding women

Side effects

There may be no side effects. Possible side effects include, feeling tired, dry mouth, feeling drowsy, dizzy and sick. Rashes are possible.

Dosage

Take two capsules straight away. Then take one capsule after each episode of diarrhoea for up to 5 days. The maximum number of capsules in a day is 8 (16mg). The usual amount is 3-4 capsules (6-8mg) daily.
