FULL PRESCRIBING INFORMATION

Antidiarrheal LOPERAMIDE Solution

Oral Way For dogs and cats  Loperamide is meperidine derivative.  The antidiarrheic action is achieved by its modulating effect on intestinal motility, which, in turn is achieved through the stimulation of the rhythmic segmentation (acting on circular smooth muscle) and by decreasing the peristalsis (with either no effect on the longitudinal smooth muscle, or relaxing it), as well as due to the antisecretory effect, increasing the absorption of nutrients, water and electrolytes, achieved by blocking the channel of calcium or by inhibiting the calcium binding protein, calmodulin

Formula:

Each ml of oral solution contains:
Loperamide hydrochloride...........2 mg Vehicle q.s.

Indications:

Symptomatic treatment of acute and chronic diarrhea.
