Imodium Original is a very effective medication that is used to help provide relief to those suffering from diarrhoea. Imodium is a very well-known brand that was created by Janssen Pharmaceutica, a subsidiary of the globally recognised company Johnson & Johnson. There are a number of different types of Imodium that provide users with a number of different benefits. The different types of Imodium include Imodium Dual Action, Imodium Instants, and Imodium Syrup. 

Imodium Uses

Imodium Original is used to provide relief to those suffering from diarrhoea. It is best used as a short-term medication and is most effective at treating diarrhoea that is sudden and onset. This can be caused by a viral or bacterial infection or food poisoning. Imodium Original should not be used by people that have stools that are bloody as this may indicate that there is a more serious underlying health condition. 

The medication that is used in Imodium Original is known as loperamide. The active ingredients work to slow down the movement of the bowels and the intestines, decreasing the rate at which food and waste pass through the intestines. This gives your digestive system more time to absorb water and electrolytes, leading to a more solid stool. As mentioned, Imodium Original works best when treating sudden-onset diarrhoea. 

Imodium Dosage

The dosage of Imodium Original that you will need to take to relieve your symptoms will vary on the severity of your condition, your age, and other medications you are taking. Typically, an adult will take two capsules to start with, followed by another one after a loose stool. The maximum amount of capsules an adult should have in a day is eight. Imodium Original should not be used for more than two days without consulting a healthcare professional.

Imodium Side Effects

Like any medication, you may experience some side effects when you use Imodium Original. Whilst side effects are rare, there are some more common ones that people report. These include allergic reactions, abdominal pain, difficulty urinating and lightheadedness. If any of these side effects persist you may wish to consider contacting a healthcare professional for further advice.
