Numark Diarrhoea Relief Capsules Pack of 6

Effective Treatment for Acute Diarrhoea

Numark Diarrhoea Relief Capsules offer a targeted solution for sudden, acute diarrhoea in adults and children aged 12 years and older. Each capsule contains 2mg of loperamide hydrochloride, a medication that works by slowing down an overactive bowel, resulting in firmer stools and reducing the frequency of bowel movements. This action helps the body absorb more water and salts from the bowels, providing relief from discomfort.

Usage & Directions

For effective relief from acute diarrhoea, follow these instructions:

  • Adults and children aged 12 years and over: Begin with 2 capsules and follow with 1 capsule after each loose bowel movement.
  • Do not exceed 6 capsules within any 24-hour period.
  • For IBS-related diarrhoea (adults 18 years and older only): Follow the same initial dosage but continue as needed until stools become solid.

Always use as directed and do not exceed the recommended duration of treatment.

Warnings & Precautions

Loperamide capsules may not be suitable for everyone. Avoid use if you:

  • Are allergic to loperamide or any other ingredient in the capsules.
  • Need to maintain regular bowel movements to avoid complications.
  • Have an existing bowel condition such as constipation or a blocked bowel.
  • Suffer from inflammatory bowel diseases like colitis or diverticulosis.
  • Experience symptoms of dysentery.

Consult your healthcare provider before use if:

  • You have liver disease or inflammatory bowel disease.
  • You are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding.
  • You are taking other medications, especially antibiotics or heart medications.
