What is the medicine used for?

This medicine is used for the following conditions:

  • Control and symptomatic relief of:
    • acute nonspecific diarrhea
    • chronic diarrhea associated with inflammatory bowel disease

How much and how often should you use this medicine?
  • For Symptomatic Relief of Acute Diarrhea
    Adult Dose:

    Take 2 capsules initially followed by 1 capsule after each loose bowel movement. Or, as directed by a doctor. Maximum dose is 16 mg (8 capsules) per day. Discontinue if there is no improvement after 2 days.

  • For Symptomatic Relief of Chronic Diarrhea Adult Dose:
    Adult Dose:

    Take 2 capsules initially followed by 1 capsule after each loose bowel movement. Then reduce Loperamide dose to meet individual requirements. When the optimal daily dosage has been established, administer this amount as a single dose or in divided doses. Or, as directed by a doctor.

  • Average Daily Maintenance Dose:

    Take 2 to 4 capsules/day. A dosage of five capsules (10 mg) is rarely exceeded. If no clinical improvement is observed after treatment with 8 capsules/day (16 mg/day) for at least 10 days, symptoms are unlikely to be controlled by further Loperamide administration.
