Imodium Multi-Symptom Relief Overview

Updated: 

Imodium Multi-Symptom Relief is an over the counter medication used to treat symptoms of diarrhea along with gas, including gas, cramps, and bloating.

It is a single product containing 2 ingredients: Loperamide and simethicone. Loperamide is an antidiarrheal, which works by slightly paralyzing the intestines which allows the stools to spend more time in the intestines and reduces the amount of fluids in the stools. Simethicone belongs to a group of drugs called antiflatulents. Antiflatulents work by breaking up gas bubbles in the stomach and making them easier to be burped before entering the intestines. 

This medication comes in a caplet and chewable tablet form, and is usually taken after each loose stool, with or without food. 

Common side effects of Imodium Multi-Symptom Relief include dizziness, nausea, and constipation

Imodium Multi-Symptom Relief and Pregnancy

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.

The FDA categorizes medications based on safety for use during pregnancy. Five categories - A, B, C, D, and X, are used to classify the possible risks to an unborn baby when a medication is taken during pregnancy.

Loperamide falls into category C. There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Loperamide should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.
