Imodium Zapid Diarrhoea Tablets 12s


Andrew’s counselling tips:

  • Imodium Zapid tablets melt on your tongue without the need to be taken with water – so it’s a perfect product to have if your travelling overseas
  • Imodium Zapid works by slowing down your gut movement which decreases the number of bowel motions and therefore limits dehydration through diarrhoea
  • The main counselling point that we discuss with our customers is the importance of rehydration alongside Imodium, such as by using SOS Hydration sachets
  • Water is useful as a rehydration method however, it doesn’t contain the essential electrolytes needed for the body’s recovery that is in the SOS sachets
  • Fruit juices, soft drinks (including flat lemonade) and energy drinks can actually make you more dehydrated due to their high sugar content
  • For children under 12 it is best to offer them rehydration instead of treating with Imodium Zapid. If the diarrhoea hasn’t improved in 48 hours, see your doctor
  • During pregnancy, it is better to stick to replenishing fluids and electrolytes and wait for the diarrhoea to improve over 24-48 hours
  • NOT to be taken in pregnancy or breastfeeding, unless recommended by a doctor

Use only as directed, if symptoms persist see your doctor or health professional. Always read the label. Vitamins are supplementary to a balanced diet.
