This medicine is taken by adults and children over the age of 12 to treat acute, sudden diarrhoea and associated symptoms, such as wind, bloating and stomach cramps.
The tablets contain the two active ingredients loperamide hydrochloride and simeticone. They work to relieve diarrhoea in the following way:
Loperamide belongs to a group of medicines called antipropulsives. It works to slow down the bowel while also helping it to absorb water and important electrolytes.
Simeticone works to relieve stomach cramps and bloating by gently breaking up trapped wind.
The tablets should be swallowed whole with a drink of water. This treatment should not be used for longer than 48 hours. If the symptoms persist, ask your doctor for advice on that to do next.
For adults (18 years and over), the recommended dose is two tablets, then one tablet after every loose bowel movement.
For young adults and children over the age of 12, the recommended dose is one tablet, then one tablet after every loose bowel movement.
Do not exceed 4 tablets in 24 hours. Do not give to children under the age of 12.
