Imodium Plus Caplets are used for the treatment of sudden, short-lived (acute) attacks of diarrhoea and the associated symptoms of gas-related abdominal discomfort including, bloating, cramping or flatulence, in adults and children.
Imodium Plus Caplets are capsule shaped tablets that are ideal to take if you have difficulty swallowing tablets. They act quickly to restore normal bowel function and allow you to continue your planned daily activities with confidence. Imodium is the world's leading anti-diarrhoeal, provides fast, effective relief (often in just one dose) from diarrhoea and associated abdominal discomfort, including bloating, pressure and cramps commonly referred to as gas. Imodium is the only anti-diarrhoeal brand that combines two powerful medicines for multi-symptom relief in every dose. And it works faster than prescription loperamide HCl, so you can spend less time feeling uncomfortable and more time enjoying life. Imodium Plus works by making the stools more solid and less frequent. The anti-diarrhoeal effect of Imodium Plus starts to be seen within one hour in patients with acute diarrhoea. Imodium Plus can also be used to treat episodes of diarrhoea associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome after a diagnosis by the doctor has been made. If prescribed by a doctor Imodium Plus can also be used to treat long-lasting (chronic) diarrhoea in adults.
