Imodium Plus Caplets

Imodium Plus Caplets treat short-lived attacks of diarrhoea in adults and children aged 12 years and over when it occurs with stomach cramps, bloating and wind. They contain 2 active ingredients:
  • Loperamide hydrochloride: this helps reduce diarrhoea by slowing down an overactive bowel. It also helps the body to absorb more water and salts from the bowel.
  • Simeticone: this breaks up the trapped wind in the bowel that causes cramps and bloating.
Swallow the correct number of caplets whole with a drink of water. For oral use only. Do not use more than the stated dose shown in the table.

Unless your doctor has told you otherwise, follow these instructions:
  • Adults over 18 years old: Swallow two caplets initially, followed by one caplet after every loose stool (bowel movement).
  • Children and young adults (12 to 18 years): Swallow one caplet initially, followed by one caplet after every loose stool (bowel movement).
Do not take more than 4 caplets in a day. If your symptoms persist after two days, stop taking the caplets and contact your doctor.
  • Active Ingredients: Loperamide hydrochloride (2mg per caplet) and Simeticone (measured as 125mg dimeticone per caplet).
  • Other Ingredients: Calcium hydrogen phosphate anhydrous, microcrystalline cellulose, acesulfame potassium, artificial vanilla flavour (includes propylene glycol, maltodextrin and benzyl alcohol), sodium starch glycolate (type A) and stearic acid.
  • Imodium Plus Caplets may make you feel dizzy, tired or sleepy. If affected do not drive or operate machinery.
  • Do not take this medicine for anything other than its intended use and never take more than the recommended amount. Serious heart problems (symptoms of which include fast or irregular heartbeat) have been reported in patients who have taken too much loperamide, the active ingredient in Imodium Plus Caplets.
  • In acute diarrhoea, the symptoms usually disappear within two days. If symptoms persist after this period, stop taking this medicine and contact your doctor.
  • Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking this medicine if you are pregnant, think you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant.
  • Imodium Plus Caplets are not recommended if you are breastfeeding as small amounts of the medicine may get into your milk. Talk to your doctor about a suitable treatment.
  • Imodium Plus Caplets only treat the symptoms of diarrhoea. In some cases, the cause of your diarrhoea may require treatment, if symptoms persist or worsen, please contact your doctor.
Do not use Imodium Plus Caplets:
  • In children less than 12 years old.
  • If you are allergic (hypersensitive) to loperamide hydrochloride, simeticone or any of the other ingredients of the caplets.
  • If you have a high temperature (e.g. above 38° C) or blood in your stools.
  • If you are having a flare up of an inflammatory bowel condition like ulcerative colitis.
  • If you have severe diarrhoea after taking antibiotics.
  • If you are constipated or your stomach appears swollen.
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist:
  • If you have severe diarrhoea as your body loses more fluid, sugars and salts than normal. You will need to replace the fluid by drinking more liquid than usual. Ask your pharmacist about special powders which replace the sugars and salts.
  • If you have AIDS and your stomach becomes swollen, stop taking the caplets immediately and contact your doctor.
  • If you have liver disease. Check with your doctor before using the caplets. Some of the side-effects might be more troublesome.
  • If you are taking any other medicines including:
  • Quinidine (used to treat abnormal heart rhythms or malaria).
  • Itraconazole or ketoconazole (antifungal medicines).
  • Gemfibrozil (used to treat high cholesterol).
  • Ritonavir (used to treat HIV infection and AIDS).
  • Desmopressin (used to control thirst and urine production in patients with diabetes insipidus).
Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription, because Imodium Plus Caplets may interact with them.
