Imotril® (loperamide)

Imotril® (loperamide) comes in a single dosage form:

Imotril® (loperamide HCl) 2mg, 10 capsules

Imotril® (loperamide) is an antidiarrheal medication used to decreases the frequency of diarrhea, the amount of discharge, and to reduce its watery consistency. It works mainly by slowing down intestinal movement thereby increasing contact time inside the gut. It treats the symptoms and not the actual cause of the diarrhea.


Typically, 4mg or 2 capsules of Imotril® (loperamide) are taken initially followed by one capsule for each instance of loose bowel movement as needed; not to exceed 8 capsules (16mg) per day.
