What is imodium?

Anti-Diarrheal (loperamide) 1 mg/5 mL Oral Liquid
Drug Name: LOPERAMIDE LIQUID -ORAL
Other Brand Names: Imodium, Imodium A-D, K-Pek II
Uses: This medication is used to treat sudden diarrhea (including traveler's diarrhea). It works by slowing down the movement of the gut. This decreases the number of bowel movements and makes the stool less watery. Loperamide is also used to reduce the amount of discharge in patients who have had an ileostomy. It is also used to treat ongoing diarrhea in people with inflammatory bowel disease. Loperamide treats only the symptoms, not the cause of the diarrhea (e.g., infection). Treatment of other symptoms and the cause of the diarrhea should be determined by your doctor. Do not use in children younger than 6 years unless directed by your doctor. This medication should not be used in infants younger than 24 months.
All forms of drug: Imodium Oral Liquid , Imodium Cap
