Imodium Instant Melts are used to treat both short-term diarrhoea, or IBS diarrhoea, by helping stools become more solid and less frequent. They can offer rapid, effective relief and stop diarrhoea in just one hour. They dissolve instantly on the tongue, therefore do not need to be taken with water. They are ideal for those who struggle with taking tablets, and are handy to keep in your bag for relief whilst on the go.

When something upsets the natural balance of nutrients and water absorption in your intestines, your digestive system starts to work too fast. This leads to the frequent passing of loose, watery stools, known as diarrhoea. Contrary to popular belief, Imodium doesn't work by stopping your bowel movements. Instead, it contains an active ingredient called 'Loperamide', which works by calming your digestive system down. This helps your digestive system get back to normal, leading to firmer stools. By restoring this delicate balance, you can feel better sooner and have the confidence to get on with your day.
