Treating Diarrhea - Why Is It So Important?
With diarrhea, the body loses water and electrolytes. This can stress the organism - there is a risk of drying out (dehydration).
It is all the more important to treat diarrhea quickly and reliably. The active ingredient loperamide has proven itself here for a long time.
How loperamide works against acute diarrhea

And this is how loperamide works:
