Imodium Instant Melts are used for the symptomatic treatment of acute diarrhoea and acute episodes if diarrhoea associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome diagnosed by a doctor.

Imodium Instant Melts get to work within an hour to relieve your short-lived and acute episodes of diarrhoea. These convenient tablets melt in seconds on your tongue, without any need for water, so they are ideal for when you’re on the go. Diarrhoea treatment has never been so quick and easy, than with Imodium Instant Melting Tablets.

They can also be used for diarrhoea associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) following guidance from your doctor.

How does Imodium work?

When something upsets the natural balance of nutrients and water absorption in your intestines, your digestive system starts to work too fast. This leads to the frequent passing of loose, watery stools, known as diarrhoea. Contrary to popular belief, Imodium doesn't work by stopping your bowel movements. Instead, it contains an active ingredient called 'loperamide', which works by calming your digestive system down. This helps your digestive system get back to normal, leading to firmer stools. By restoring this delicate balance, you can feel better sooner and have the confidence to get on with your day.

Directions for taking Imodium Instant Melts:

  • For acute diarrhoea for persons 12 years and over: initially 2 tablets allowed to disintegrate on the tongue and then swallowed followed by one tablet after each loose bowel movement. The usual dosage is 3 to 4 tablets per day. Maximum 8 tablets in 24 hours.
  • Under 12 years: not to be given.
  • Acute diarrhoea associated with IBS: Over 12 years: initially 2 tablets allowed to disintegrate on the tongue and then swallowed. The usual dose is 2 to 4 tablets per day in divided doses. If required this dose can be adjusted according to response up to a maximum of 8 tablets in 24 hours.
