Loperamide (opioid drug) acts by slowing bowel movement, and is usually not recommended in case of viral diarrhoea. Loperamide is not recommended for children under 12. Loperamide may cause serious side effects and has various contraindications. Unlike other anti-diarrhoeal medication, ENTEROSGEL® is drug-free and therefore has an excellent safety profile and can be used in patients with other conditions and who take medication. It passes through the gut to bind to substances that could have caused diarrhoea: viruses, allergens, pathogens, bacterial toxins and then it is excreted from the body within 12-24 hours.Suitable for children and adults. There have been no reports of adverse reactions from using ENTEROSGEL® in over 20 years.
