Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Loperamide is an effective and safe antidiarrheal agent which served as a very useful adjunct in the treatment in 79% of 47 patients with chronic diarrhea. One of the major advantages of loperamide to the patient with chronic diarrhea is its convenience. Usually, a single dose in the morning effectively controlled diarrhea during the day. Patients with nocturnal or early morning diarrhea obtained good control with a second bedtime dose of the drug.
