What are Dioralyte Relief Oral Rehydration Therapy Blackcurrant Sachets?

Dioralyte Relief Sachets are a treatment that is intended to be used by people who are suffering from the effects of diarrhoea. These sachets work by replacing the water and salts that are lost by the body as a result of diarrhoea. This helps stools to return to normal. These sachets contain pre-cooked rice powder and salts, which are:

  • Sodium citrate
  • Sodium chloride
  • Potassium chloride

The powder should be mixed with water before using.

 

What causes diarrhoea?

Knowing the main cause of diarrhoea is tricky, but it can be speculated what the cause is. Potential causes of diarrhoea can include:

  • Gastroenteritis (a stomach bug)
  • Food poisoning
  • An allergy
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Coeliac disease
  • Diverticular disease

Anyone of these could be the cause of diarrhoea and it could also be caused by some types of medication as well.

 

Who are these Dioralyte Sachets suitable for?

These sachets can be used by adults and children aged 1 and over. Babies aged 3 months and over can use them, but it must only be under the supervision of a doctor. Anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the sachets should not use them. These sachets should also not be used if you have or have had:

  • A partial or fully blocked bowel
  • Severe kidney or liver disease

If you are currently using any medication for another condition, speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using.

 

Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use these sachets?

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, then speak to a medical professional for advice before using these sachets.

 

How should Dioralyte Relief Oral Rehydration Therapy Blackcurrant Sachets?

Empty the sachet into a glass and add 200ml of water. Stir until the solution has dissolved fully. Use one sachet after each time you feel the effects of diarrhoea. Take a maximum of 5 sachets in a day. Do not use for longer than 3-4 days.

 

Are there any side effects?

Like with any medicines, there is a chance of side effects. There could be side effects as a result of an allergic reaction. Side effects include a rash, swallowing or breathing problems. If you notice any side effect, stop using and speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist as soon as possible. You can also record a side effect using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.
