Treating Diarrhea Fast


Why treat diarrhea?

The sooner you can treat your diarrhea symptoms, the sooner you can begin to feel like yourself again, helping you to get on with your day.

It’s best to treat it early.

Although acute diarrhea usually resolves on its own within a few days, you can get relief faster with IMODIUM® products. IMODIUM® products contain an active ingredient called Loperamide which works to help restore your body’s natural rhythm so you can start to feel like yourself again. If symptoms persist for more than two days – or get worse – consult your healthcare professional.

QA Text: 

Many people think diarrhea is a sign that your body is trying to get rid of something, so it’s better to let it ‘flush’ any bacteria or toxins out of the body. Although acute diarrhea generally resolves on its own, treating with IMODIUM® products relieves symptoms more quickly than letting diarrhea run its natural course. Speak to your physician if you have any questions or concerns.

It’s true that it’s better to avoid trigger foods or stresses if these are the factors that cause diarrhea for you. But sometimes you aren’t able to control its cause. If you are experiencing diarrhea, you can treat the symptoms. Treatment may help to stop your diarrhea and may help your body recover more quickly than if you don’t treat it at all.
