Buy Generic Imodium Online
Active ingredient: Loperamide
Product Code: PR10533
What is this drug?
Imodium is prescribed to treat diarrhoea including traveller’s diarrhoea. It slows down the peristaltic movement of the gut and gives more time to the small intestine to absorb water and nutrients thus reducing the bulk and consistency of the stool.
Classification and Mechanism of Action
Generic Imodium contains Loperamide as the active drug. It is a synthetic antidiarrheal and acts by binding to the opiate receptors in the gut wall. It inhibits the release of prostaglandins and acetylcholine and that reduces the intestinal motility. The small intestine gets time to absorb water and electrolytes and that reduces the bulk and consistency.
