In most cases Diarrhoea is nothing to worry about and usually self limiting. However these acute attacks of diarrhoea can cause disruption in peoples day to day life. Diarrhoea can be relieved by taking Loperamide capsules. Loperamide is the generic substitute for the brand Imodium. Both Imodium and Generic Loperamide contain 2mg Loperamide as the active ingredient and their mode of action is exactly the same. The only difference is Loperamide is a lot cheaper. Loperamide works by reducing and slowing down the motility in the bowel and therefore solidifying the stool.
