What Are Loperamide Hydrochloride Capsules For

A common question we are asked is “What are Loperamide Hydrochloride Capsules for?”

Loperamide Capsules are used for the relief of short-term diarrhoea and diarrhoea related to Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The particular type of IBS that causes diarrhoea is called IBS-D, which is a type of diarrhoea that causes stomach pain, bloating and stools that are often loose or more frequent.

There are many reasons you may develop IBS-D. Some people can develop it from a prior infection of the gut. This is called post-infections IBS-D and can last for weeks, months, even years after infection.

Another reason someone may develop IBS-D is an allergy or reaction. Sensitivity to certain foods can cause a flare up, causing symptoms to appear after eating certain food ingredients. Identifying and avoiding these ingredients can help improve symptoms, but routine allergy tests are not a reliable way to tell if particular foods or ingredients are the cause.

If you have any more questions about “What are Loperamide Hydrochloride Capsules For?” your doctor can provide further insight into the topic.

Loperamide 2mg Capsules Dosage

The following Loperamide 2mg Capsules Dosage is the recommended dosage without doctor’s instructions. This information is included in the patient information leaflet.

Recommended Loperamide 2mg Capsules Dosage (Adults, Elderly & Children over the age of twelve)

Loperamide Capsules Vs Tablets

Loperamide Capsules vs Tablets are the two most common forms of oral medication. They are intended for the same purpose but have some key differences when compared.

Firstly, Loperamide Tablets when compared to capsules will be the cheaper of the two options. Tablets are generally cheaper to manufacture. This often makes them more affordable for consumers.

Secondly, Loperamide Capsules are fast acting, tending to break down more quickly than tablets. Once in the body, tablets are absorbed by the body a lot slower than their capsule counterpart and in some cases may not deliver the dose all at once, due to unevenly breaking down. Capsules on the other hand are more likely to enter your bloodstream at an even rate. This makes a capsule format for drug delivery slightly more effective.

Lastly, a patient may have allergies or reactions to certain pill additives, need a vegan option, or struggle swallowing whole pills. If this is the case, a doctor will work to find the best type of tablet or capsule best suited for their patient.

If you are struggling to decide between Loperamide Capsules vs Tablets and would like further information on the benefits and downsides between both, please to speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
