Normaloe Tablets 2mg
Normaloe tablets contain the active ingredient loperamide hydrochloride, this reduces the speed at which the gut contents are pushed through the intestines, allowing more time for water and electrolytes to be reabsorbed from the gut contents back into the body. This results in firmer stools that are passed less frequently.
