Product Summary

Imodium Dual Action Tablets is a medicine used to treat sudden, short-lived (acute) attacks of diarrhoea and calm additional abdominal discomfort such as cramps, wind and bloating.

The tablets contain loperamide hydrochloride, which helps reduce diarrhoea by slowing down an overactive bowel, helping the body to absorb water and salts from the bowel.

The tablets also contain simeticone, which is an anti-foaming agent that breaks up trapped wind in the bowel that causes cramps and bloating.

This medicine is for use in adults and children aged 12 years and over.

Directions

  • Adults over 18 years old: Swallow two tablets initially, followed by one tablet after each loose bowel movement.
  • Children and young adults (12 to 18 years): Swallow one tablet initially, followed by one tablet after each loose bowel movement.
  • Do not take more than 4 tablets in any 24 hour period.
  • Do not take for more than 48 hours.
  • If symptoms persist for more than 48 hours talk to your doctor

Ingredients

  • The active ingredients are: Loperamide hydrochloride (2 mg per caplet) and Simeticone (measured as 125 mg dimeticone per caplet).
  • The other ingredients are: 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.

Warnings and Restrictions

If you have AIDS and your stomach becomes swollen, stop taking the tablets immediately and contact your doctor.

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist:

  • if you suffer from liver disease
  • if your diarrhoea lasts for more than 48 hours
  • if you have severe diarrhoea, as your body loses more fluid, sugars and salts than normal
  • if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, think you are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant.

This medicine may make you feel dizzy, tired or sleepy. If affected do not drive or operate machinery.

Imodium Plus Comfort Tablets 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.

When you have diarrhoea, your body can lose large amounts of fluids and salts.

You will need to replace the fluid by drinking more liquid than usual.

Ask your pharmacist about powders (oral rehydration therapy) which replace fluids and salts lost during diarrhoea.

Taking other medicines

Talk to a doctor or pharmacist 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)

If you are unsure about any of the medicines you are taking, show the bottle or pack to your pharmacist.
