Norimode is an antidiarrhoeal medication available as 2 mg tablets. It is a treatment for acute diarrhoea in adults, but is also used to treat flare-ups of chronic diarrhoea in adults.
You can buy Norimode online safely from Prescription Doctor. Simply fill out our quick consultation and one of our qualified doctors will determine whether the treatment is safe for you.
If the doctor approves your order before 3pm weekdays, they will issue a prescription for the treatment for our UK regulated pharmacy to dispense. Your order will be dispatched the same day for a next-day delivery.
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.
Diarrhoea causes the body to lose fluids which can result in dehydration. Symptoms of dehydration can include:
Treating diarrhoea can greatly reduce the risk of experiencing dehydration.
Norimode tablets contain 2 mg of loperamide hydrochloride as the active ingredient. Loperamide hydrochloride slows down contractions in the bowels and is sometimes referred to as an anti-motility medication.
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 bowel walls.
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 stay in the bowel, causing more water and electrolytes to be absorbed, so your stool can return to its normal form.
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:
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.
If you take more Norimode than prescribed, call your doctor or go to the 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.
Before taking Norimode, it is important to familiarise yourself with the patient information leaflet (PIL) enclosed with your medicine. If you have any concerns about the information in this leaflet, contact your doctor or a pharmacist for advice.

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

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.
