How does Imodium work?
This medication works by slowing down digestion. This means that the small intestines will have more time to absorb fluids and nutrients. Apart from effectively treating diarrhoea, Imodium also reduces the quantity of stools in those who have an ileostomy. The medication only treats the symptoms of diarrhoea, not the causes.
How do I take Imodium?
Imodium must be used as directed by your doctor. It must not be used in smaller or larger quantities or for a longer period than recommended. When taking the medication, take it with a full glass of water and also drink lots of water while taking Imodium so that you always stay hydrated. Usually this medication is taken when you start experiencing diarrhoea symptoms. The first dose is normally twice as much as the doses you will take afterwards.
Imodium must not be taken more than 3 times in a period of 24 hours, unless those are the doctor’s instructions. If the medication is in the form of a chewable tablet, make sure that you chew the tablet before swallowing. If it is in the form of an oral suspension, shake the bottle well prior to measuring a dose. As for the dose, make use of the special measuring spoon that comes with the medication; do not use a regular spoon.
Are there side effects?
