Diphenoxylate - atropine is used to treat Diarrhea that is not caused by infection with bacteria. Lomotil works by slowing down the movement of the bowels.

Lomotil may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Lomotil may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Lomotil may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Lomotil for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Lomotil, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Lomotil without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Lomotil to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Lomotil if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Lomotil Dosage

The usual initial adult dose of diphenoxylate - atropine is 5 mg (2 tablets) 3 or 4 times daily to a maximum of 20 mg (8 tablets) taken in 24 hours. The children's dose is based on age and approximate body weight. Lomotil should not be used by children under 4 years old. As soon as symptoms are brought under control, reduce the dose or stop taking the medication as directed by your doctor.

Swallow the tablets whole with a glass of water. Do not crush or chew the tablets. Drink plenty of water while you are taking Lomotil.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Lomotil exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Lomotil at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
