What causes diarrhoea?

Diarrhoea is the passing of loose or watery stools more regularly than normal. It usually happens when your bowels are unable to absorb fluid back into your body properly, causing excessive water to come out with your stool.

Diarrhoea can be caused by bacterial or viral infections, food intolerances, anxiety or chronic conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulcerative colitis and Chron's disease.

If you experience diarrhoea regularly, speak to your doctor. They can help you to determine the cause of your diarrhoea. From there, they can provide advice on how to prevent bouts of diarrhoea from developing again.

Why is it important to treat diarrhoea?

Diarrhoea causes the body to lose fluids, resulting in dehydration.

Symptoms of dehydration can include:

  • Dizziness
  • Dry mouth
  • Dry skin
  • Fainting
  • Faster breathing
  • headaches
  • Increased heartbeat
  • Muscle cramps
  • Sunken eyes

Treating diarrhoea can greatly reduce the risk of becoming dehydrated.

While treating diarrhoea with Norimode, make sure you drink plenty of fluids throughout the day to further prevent dehydration. Norimode (loperamide) will not hydrate you.

Avoid drinking alcohol or caffeinated beverages while you have diarrhoea, as these can worse your symptoms. Stick to water and fruit juices.

If your diarrhoea lasts longer than 48 hours, contact your doctor before continuing to take Norimode.

With Prescription Doctor, you can order Norimode (loperamide) tablets online. Simply fill out our online medical questionnaire, and we'll do the rest.

Our team of prescribers can determine whether loperamide is safe for you, and issue a prescription online. If your order is approved before 3pm on weekdays, our UK pharmacy can dispense and dispatch loperamide tablets directly to your door.

We ship all items in plain and discreet packaging to ensure your privacy.

How does Norimode Work?

Norimode tablets contain 2 mg of loperamide hydrochloride as the active ingredient.

Loperamide hydrochloride slows down contractions in the bowels.

Normally, muscles contract around the bowel walls to push stools along to be passed out. As this process continues, water and nutrients are extracted back into the body by the walls of the bowels.

If the stool matter travels too quickly due to an infection or other bowel disease, water remains in the stool, which passes out as diarrhoea.

Norimode slows down the movement of stool matter in your bowels. This increases the time it stays in the bowel, causing more water and electrolytes to be absorbed, so your stool can return to its normal form.

How do I take Norimode?

Follow the dosage recommendation prescribed by your doctor. Often this dosage is based on your age and symptoms.

Take Norimode with a full glass of water.

The typical dose might be:

  • For adults with acute diarrhoea - Take two Norimode 2 mg tablets for an initial dose. Take an additional tablet after every round of diarrhoea for up to five days.
  • For adults with chronic diarrhoea - Take two Norimode 2 mg tablets each day. After your stool becomes firmer, the doctor may prescribe a maintenance dose of one to six tablets each daily.

Do not take more than 6 Norimode tablets a day.

Do not take Norimode for longer than 5 days.

What should I do if I forget to take Norimode?

If you forget to take a dose of Norimode, take it when you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose.

Do not take more Norimode to make up for a missed dose.

What should I do if I take more Norimode than I should?

Taking too much Norimode may lead to cardiac problems, such as a fast or .

If you take more Norimode than prescribed, call your doctor or go to the nearest casualty department for help.

Take any remaining medicine with you or, if there is no medicine left, take the packaging. This helps doctors to ascertain how much you took and provide the right care.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know when to stop taking Norimode?

Follow the directions given to you by your doctor. Stop taking the drug if you develop constipation if you have swelling in your abdomen or if you exhibit any adverse reactions such as hives.

If you see no improvement after 48 hours, stop taking the medication and contact your doctor.

Can I drink alcohol while taking Norimode?

It is best not to drink alcohol while taking Norimode.

Drinking alcohol while taking this medication can worsen side effects, such as dizziness and nausea.

While treating diarrhoea, you should avoid alcohol. Alcohol has a diuretic effect which prevents the body from retaining fluids.

As stools are pushed through the bowels, any remaining fluids are absorbed. Alcohol speeds up the movement of stools which prevents the fluids from being absorbed as effectively, resulting in soft or loose stools (diarrhoea).

Can I take Norimode with other medications?

Norimode may change the way other medications work and may cause constipation if taken with other drugs, specifically opioids. Please inform our doctors of all medications you take before starting Norimode, including over-the-counter drugs and herbal supplements

If you are unsure whether Norimode is suitable for you, speak to your GP or pharmacist for advice.

Can I drive or operate machinery after taking Norimode?

Norimode can cause dizziness or drowsiness. Find out how the medication affects you before driving a car or using heavy machinery.

Can I take Norimode with Dioralyte?

It is safe to take Dioralyte alongside Norimode.

Dioralyte is a type of medicine known as a rehydrating salt. The dry powder is mixed with water to produce a drink which is rich in electrolytes, to help the body remain hydrated.

You can buy Norimode and Dioralyte online directly from us at Prescription Doctor.
