Diatabs
Frequently Asked Questions

Diatabs® is used for the control of acute non-specific diarrhea and/or chronic diarrhea associated with inflammatory bowel disease.

If you have acute diarrhea, take 2 capsules initially, followed by 1 capsule after each bowel movement or as recommended by your doctor. Maximum dose is 16mg or 8 capsules a day. Discontinue if there is no improvement after 2 days. 

If you have chronic diarrhea, take 2 capsules initially followed by 1 capsule after each bowel movement. Then reduce loperamide dose to meet individual requirements, or as recommended by your doctor. Maximum dose is 16mg or 8 capsules a day. Discontinue if there is no improvement after 2 days. 

Diatabs® is not advisable to be taken by those who are pregnant, or those who are breastfeeding.

(Please refer to the Patient Information Leaflet for the complete list of who should not take Diatabs®.)

Children below 12 years old should not take Diatabs®

The loperamide in Diatabs® slows down intestinal movement and reduces fluid and salt loss in the intestines. As a result, the consistency of the stool is improved or the stool is hardened.
