When to treat diarrhea ?

If you suffer from diarrhea, it’s best to treat it early – straight after the first bout. By treating diarrhea, you can start to feel better and get on with your day. 

There’s no need to suffer and wait

Our survey of over 2000 sufferers of frequent acute diarrhea in 14 countries, found that 84% of us feel weak and tired when suffering from diarrhea. This is no surprise when you consider the resulting loss of important fluids and salts from our body, which can often make you feel even more drained and depleted.

So why wait to treat it when you can quickly relieve diarrhea and prevent its dehydrating effects ?

When to use rehydration treatments

If you have diarrhea, it’s a good idea to take an oral rehydration solution alongside IMODIUM®.

Oral rehydration solutions replace lost fluids and salts and help to prevent dehydration. They don’t, however, relieve the symptoms of diarrhea.

That’s why you should use IMODIUM® (to relieve diarrhea) together with an oral rehydration solution (to rehydrate your system).

When to see a doctor

You should consult your doctor if :

  • Your symptoms last longer than 48 hours
  • You develop a fever over 38°C
  • You have blood or mucus in your stools

Why delay?

Experts agree that there’s no advantage to ignoring diarrhea.

IMODIUM® Capsules are proven and trusted for stopping diarrhea.

IMODIUM® Instants dissolve instantly on your tongue, so they’re perfect for when you’re on the go.

Where to buy IMODIUM®

It’s easy to find IMODIUM® in pharmacies. You don’t need a prescription, so you can buy it over the counter.
