Dioralyte is an over-the-counter treatment for diarrhoea. It is available in sachets of flavoured powder that you mix with water and drink. Dioralyte replenishes the salts and electrolytes that are lost during bouts of diarrhoea and vomiting.
Dioralyte sachets are available in 3 flavours from our online pharmacy: natural, citrus and blackcurrant.
We offer a fast and discreet delivery on all orders approved before 3pm on weekdays.
Our online prescribers are available to discuss treatments with you, and our team of pharmacists ensure that you receive high-quality products from our UK based pharmacy.
Diarrhoea can be caused by:
While Dioralyte prevents dehydration while you have diarrhoea, it does not treat the underlying cause of your diarrhoea.
If you experience diarrhoea regularly, speak to your doctor for advice. They will be able to discuss the possible reason for your diarrhoea, and provide advice on how to prevent diarrhoea in the future.
Diarrhoea causes your body to lose more fluid through stools. If your body loses too much fluid, it can lead to dehydration.
Signs of dehydration include:
While treating diarrhoea, you must drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated. Avoid drinking alcohol or coffee if you have diarrhoea, as these can worsen diarrhoea or dehydration. Instead, drink water and fruit juice.
Seek advice from your doctor, or call NHS 111, if you have been experiencing diarrhoea for 7 days or longer.
Dioralyte contains rehydrating salts (sodium chloride, potassium chloride and disodium hydrogen citrate) and glucose.
This combination of electrolyte salts enhances the uptake of fluid by the intestines to rehydrate the body. The rehydration process reduces fluid in stool, making stools firmer and less watery.
The rehydration salts, also known as electrolytes, help the body to retain fluids more efficiently, keeping the body hydrated for longer.
Dioralyte is available in dry powder sachets.
Follow your doctor's instructions for dosage when taking Dioralyte.
Use one sachet of power after each loose stool.
It can be taken in the following steps:
Do not mix Dioralyte with anything other than water.
Do not use more or less than 200ml (7 fl oz). Using too little or too much water may affect how well the medicine works.
Drink the solution within 1 hour of mixing at room temperature. If kept refrigerated after mixing, drink the solution within 24 hours.
Discard any unused solution after one hour, if kept at room temperature, and after 24 hours, if stored in a refrigerator.
If you have trouble keeping food or drink down, you can take this medication in small sips.
Do not use more or less than 1 sachet for each dose.
If you forget to take a dose of Dioralyte, skip that dose and take the next one as needed. Do not double up doses to make up for a missed dose.
Taking too much Dioralyte should not be harmful unless taken in large quantities. Go to the hospital if you experience any side effects from the overdose. Take any remaining medication and the packaging with you to give to the hospital staff, so they have the specific details necessary to provide treatment.
Before taking Dioralyte, you must read the enclosed patient information leaflet.
If you have any concerns about the information in the patient information leaflet, speak to your doctor or ask a pharmacist for advice.
Dioralyte sachets are not suitable for everyone. If you are unsure whether it is safe for you to take Dioralyte sachets, speak to your doctor or a pharmacist.

Dioralyte may affect how other medications work, or certain medications may interfere with how Dioralyte works.
Inform our medical team of all medicines you are currently taking, including those prescribed by your doctor, or bought over the counter, as well as health and herbal supplements.
If the diarrhoea lasts longer than 36 hours, see your doctor to determine the cause.
Always read the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine before you start taking Dioralyte.
Do not take Dioralyte sachets past the expiry date printed on the packaging.
Check the expiration date on both the Dioralyte carton and the individual sachet before taking them. The date is printed as a month after EXP. The product expires on the last day of that month.
Each Dioralyte sachet contains 300mg of sodium. This is equivalent to 15% of your recommended daily intake of salt. Speak to your doctor before taking Dioralyte if you have been put on a salt restricted diet.
Do not throw away medicines via household or water waste. Take any unwanted or expired medication to your local pharmacy for proper disposal. These measures can help to protect the environment.
Always store medicines out of the sight and reach of children and pets.
Never share your medicine with anyone else, even if they exhibit the same symptoms as you.
Stop taking Dioralyte if you exhibit any side effects or if your condition worsens after taking the medication.
You should avoid drinking alcohol while taking Dioralyte.
Alcohol can increase your risk of becoming dehydrated and potentially interfere with the rehydrating effect of Dioralyte.
Dioralyte should not impact your ability to drive or operate machinery. However, it is important to know how the medicine affects you before engaging in tasks which require concentration, such as driving or operating machinery.
Tell your doctor or pharmacist before using Dioralyte if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or trying for a baby.
Store unused Dioralyte sachets in a cool, dry location with a temperature under 25°C.
For more information about taking Dioralyte with other medicines, speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
You can take up to 5 Dioralyte sachets a day, for up to 4 days.
If you feel you need to take Dioralyte for longer, speak to your doctor first.
