Description
Loperamide

By binding to opiate receptors in the gut wall, loperamide hydrochloride reduces propulsive peristalsis, increases intestinal transit time and enhances resorption of water and electrolytes. Loperamide increases the tone of the anal sphincter, which helps reduce faecal incontinence and urgency.
