Additional information


BEFORE you use IMODIUM® talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you:

  • Are pregnant or nursing a baby. IMODIUM® is not recommended for nursing mothers because small amounts of loperamide can end up in your milk;
  • Have meningitis or liver disease, as you may need medical supervision while taking IMODIUM®.

STOP USE and see your doctor or pharmacist if:

  • Diarrhea gets worse, lasts longer than 48 hours, or you experience any other unusual symptoms;
  • You are infected with HIV and you have any signs of abdominal swelling or bulging.

Although IMODIUM® stops diarrhea, it will not treat the cause of it. Whenever possible, the cause of diarrhea should also be treated.

Tiredness, dizziness, or drowsiness may occur in the setting of diarrheal symptoms treated with loperamide. Therefore, it is advisable to use caution when driving a car or operating machinery.

Additional directions for use

IMODIUM® should be taken by the mouth. You can take IMODIUM® at any time of day. The IMODIUM® LIQUI-GEL® capsules should be taken with liquid. The Quick-Dissolve tablet is a fast-dissolving tablet which can be taken without fluid. The tablet disintegrates within seconds on the surface of the tongue and is then swallowed with the saliva. The Quick-Dissolve tablets should not be pushed through the blister, as this would damage them. To take the tablets out of the blister, pull up the edge of the foil, tear the foil completely off, press out and then remove the tablet. The dose for the Calming Liquid should be administered with the attached measuring cup only.

When you have diarrhea,

  • You lose a lot of fluids. Therefore, drink plenty of clear fluids, water, unsweetened juices or clear soups.
  • Avoid drinking alcohol or milk and refrain from eating fruit, green vegetables, and spicy or fatty foods. These items tend to aggravate diarrhea.

Stop use if you have a solid or hard stool or if you go for 24 hours without a bowel movement.


In case of drug overdose, contact a health care practitioner, hospital emergency department or regional Poison Control Centre immediately, even if there are no symptoms.
