Loperamide is an over-the-counter medication primarily used to treat symptoms of diarrhea. Here are the indications for loperamide:

  1. Acute Diarrhea: Loperamide is commonly used to manage acute diarrhea, which is characterized by the sudden onset of loose or watery stools. It helps to reduce the frequency and urgency of bowel movements.

  2. Chronic Diarrhea: In certain cases of chronic diarrhea, where the condition persists for an extended period, loperamide may be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional.

  3. Traveler's Diarrhea: Loperamide is often used as a first-line treatment for traveler's diarrhea, a common condition that can occur when individuals travel to areas with different water and food sanitation standards.

  4. Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (Under Healthcare Supervision): Loperamide may be used as an adjunctive treatment for diarrhea associated with inflammatory bowel diseases (such as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis) under the supervision of a healthcare provider.

Dosage and Administration: The recommended dosage of loperamide can vary depending on the age of the individual and the severity of the diarrhea. It is usually taken after each loose stool, with a maximum daily dose. It's important to follow the specific dosing instructions provided on the product label or as directed by a healthcare professional.


  • Loperamide is not recommended for use in certain conditions such as bacterial enterocolitis caused by invasive organisms, including Salmonella, Shigella, and Campylobacter.
  • It is important to stay well-hydrated while taking loperamide, especially in cases of diarrhea.
