Gastro Stop Capsules are used for the treatment of diarrhoea.
The usual initial dose in adults (and children over 12 years of age) is 2 capsules followed by 1 capsule, as needed, after each loose bowel motion. Gastro-Stop should be swallowed whole with a glass of water.
Do not take more than 8 capsules per day.
Do not use beyond 48 hours.
If diarrhoea persists after 48 hours, see a doctor.
Each capsule contains 2 mg loperamide hydrochloride as the active ingredient.
It also contains starch-maize, lactose, povidone, sodium starch glycollate and magnesium stearate. The capsule shell contains gelatin and is coloured with patent blue V (E131), titanium dioxide (E171), yellow iron oxide (E172) and black iron oxide (E172)
Doctors may sometimes prescribe these capsules for other reasons.
Do not give Gastro-Stop to children under 12 years of age.
Always follow the directions which are on the label.
If you do not understand these directions or you are in any doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
