Loperimide treats diarrhea. It is also called Imodium. Some people take it for a short time to treat diarrhea due to temporary bowel problems. It can also be taken longer term to treat bowel problems that cause diarrhea, like irritable bowel syndrome.
Loperimide is related chemically to morphine. Morphine also causes slowing of the bowels. If normal people are taking too much morphine (like opioid *******) they will have lots of problems with constipation. Since Loperimide can be puchased without a prescription, some people are buying it to take for their opioid addiction. The Federal **** Administration (FDA) is putting more regulations on Loperimide to stop the inappropriate use of this medication.
