Product description

Fast and effective relied from diarrhoea.

Imodium original is a treatment which can ease short term diarrhoea and diarrhoea caused by IBS. It helps to reduce the number of times you need to go to the toilet, easing symptoms so you can feel better.

Imodium original contains 2mg of the active ingredient Loperamide in every capsule. This active ingredient treats diarrhoea by slowing down your overactive bowel, which gives your body the time to absorb the water and salts that it usually loses when you have diarrhoea.
