Loperamide

loperamide
Loperamide Hydrochloride is an FDA approved synthetic antidiarrheal agent. It is fast acting and long lasting. Loperamide is indicated for the relief and control of symptoms of chronic and
acute nonspecific diarrhea caused by gastroenteritis and inflammatory bowel disease. This drug is also effective in reducing the amount of discharge from ileostomies and the improvement of
incontinence.

Loperamide is an opiate receptor agonist and a piperidine derivative. It binds to the opiate receptors in the intestine to decrease mobility and allow for more water to be absorbed into the
intestines. The FDA has approved Loperamide for prescription or OTC use. It’s included on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines.
