Imodium is the generic name for anti-diarrhoea medication, Loperamide. It is used to treat diarrhoea symptoms.
It slows down the movement of the bowel from within the gut. It reduces bowel movements and makes stool appear more watery.
It is also used to stop the discharge of patients who have had an ileostomy, a procedure that involves the removal of waste from areas in the body where the rectum is or the gut is not functioning properly.
Imodium Syrup SF can also be used to treat IBD or inflammatory bowel disease.
Imodium Syrup SF, a fast-acting and long-acting synthetic anti-diarrhoeal medication is not absorbed into the gut. It does not affect the central nervous system or one's adrenergic systems. However, it can alienate histamine and interacts with acetylcholine. It reduces the number of stool movements by blocking the release of electrolytes and liquids. This medicine is preferred by patients for managing mild to severe diarrhoea.
Your medical condition, your age, and your response to treatment will all affect the dosage. The dosage for paediatric patients is determined by the patient's weight and age.
Follow the instructions on the medicine leaflet and follow your doctor's orders for Imodium Syrup SF.
