Imodium Dual Action Relief works by restoring your bowel to its normal rhythm. This helps to restore the absorption of fluids into your body. It also helps to soothe the discomfort of painful cramps.
Relieves Diarrhoea plus:
- Painful Cramps
Imodium Dual Action Relief contains 2 active ingredients, loperamide hydrochloride and simethicone. Both these ingredients work together to slow the muscular contractions of the intestine and reduce the speed of the contents being pushed through the intestine, allowing for more water to be reabsorbed back into the body. Resulting in firmer stools that are passed less frequently.
Remember, Imodium is for the symptomatic relief of diarrhoea only and is not a substitute for rehydration therapy.
What is Diarrhoea?
Well, diarrhoea is the passage of three or more loose or liquid stools per day (or more frequently than is normal for the individual). Other symptoms can be present as well which include cramps, fever, nausea/vomiting and headaches.
Acute diarrhoea should last less than 14 days. Diarrhoea in Adults that lasts longer than 14 days or any Diarrhoea that has blood or pus present should be investigated by a doctor.
