Pms Loperamide Indication

Loperamide belongs to the family of medications called antidiarrheals. Loperamide, along with rehydration therapy (fluids and electrolytes), is used to treat short bouts of Diarrhea that are not caused by a bacterial infection. It is also used to treat chronic diarrhea caused by inflammatory bowel disease (e.g., Crohn's Disease) and to reduce the amount of stool produced for people who have ileostomies, colostomies, or have had part of their intestines removed.

It works by affecting the nerves in the intestines to reduce the amount of stool produced, reduce stool frequency, make stools more solid, and reduce cramping.

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

Your doctor may have suggested Pms Loperamide 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 Pms Loperamide, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Pms Loperamide without consulting your doctor.

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

Pms Loperamide Dosage

For adults and children 12 years of age and older who have acute or chronic diarrhea, the recommended dose of loperamide is a starting dose of 4 mg, followed by a 2 mg dose after each loose bowel movement (or bout of diarrhea). Do not exceed 16 mg per day. For chronic diarrhea, once the optimal daily dose has been established, this dose can be given as a single daily dose or in divided doses.

Regular tablets should be taken with liquids. The quick-dissolve tablets can be taken without liquids. Loperamide tablets are not suitable for children under the age of 6 years old.

Children 6 to 12 years of age (10 kg to 20 kg) can use Pms Loperamide for acute or chronic diarrhea if recommended by a doctor. For children 6 to 8 years old (or weighing 20 kg to 30 kg) the recommended dose for the first day is 2 mg twice daily. For children 8 to 12 years of age who weigh over 30 kg, the recommended dose for the first day is 2 mg 3 times daily. If the diarrhea continues, then the medication is given only after a loose bowel movement, and the amount to be given depends on the weight of the child. Contact your doctor or pharmacist for the recommended amount.

For children 2 to 5 years old (or weighing 10 kg to 20 kg) the recommended dose for the first day is 1 mg 3 times daily.

For liquid forms of loperamide, use a syringe to measure each dose as this gives a more accurate measurement than household teaspoons.

Stop using loperamide if you have a solid or hard stool or if you go for 24 hours without a bowel movement. If you have acute (not chronic) diarrhea, see your doctor if it has not improved within 48 hours.

Many things can affect the dose of 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 use Pms Loperamide exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with the recommended dosing schedule (after each loose bowel movement). If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with the recommended 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 Pms Loperamide 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.

Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take.

Pms Loperamide Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Pms Loperamide.

Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS): People with AIDS should stop taking loperamide and contact their doctor if they experience abdominal swelling or distention.

Constipation: If you develop constipation, stop taking Pms Loperamide and contact your doctor.

Drowsiness or dizziness: Loperamide may cause drowsiness or dizziness. Do not drive or operate machinery until you know how loperamide affects you.

Fluids and electrolytes: The loss of fluids and electrolytes (e.g., chloride, sodium) can occur if you have diarrhea. Loperamide helps with the symptoms of diarrhea but will not correct any fluid or electrolyte problems caused by diarrhea. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about whether you need fluid and electrolyte replacement, also referred to as oral rehydration therapy.

Improvement in diarrhea: If your diarrhea has not improved after 48 hours of treatment with loperamide, stop taking it and contact your doctor.

Liver function: Liver disease or reduced liver function may cause Pms Loperamide to build up in the body, causing side effects. If you have liver problems, discuss with your doctor how Pms Loperamide may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Pms Loperamide, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Medical conditions: Loperamide should not be used by people with intestinal infections such as dysentery, which is often associated with severe diarrhea, fever, and blood in the stool, and other infections of the gut. A more serious problem of the bowel may develop if loperamide is used by some people with acute ulcerative colitis or a serious form of diarrhea associated with antibiotic use.

Pregnancy: Pms Loperamide should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Pms Loperamide, contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: Pms Loperamide passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking loperamide, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.
