USE IN ELDERLY RENAL IMPAIRMENT

HEPATIC IMPAIRMENT

Although no pharmacokinetic data are available in patients with hepatic impairment, Imodium should be used with caution in such patients because of reduced first pass metabolism. (see 4.4 Special warnings and special precautions for use).

Method of administration

Oral use.

Warnings

This medicine is contraindicated:

in patients with a known hypersensitivity to loperamide hydrochloride or to any of the excipients.

in children less than 12 years of age.

in patients with acute dysentery, which is characterised by blood in stools and high fever.

in patients with acute ulcerative colitis.

in patients with bacterial enterocolitis caused by invasive organisms including Salmonella, Shigella and Campylobacter.

in patients with pseudomembranous colitis associated with the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics.

Imodium must not be used when inhibition of peristalsis is to be avoided due to the possible risk of significant sequelae including ileus, megacolon and toxic megacolon. Imodium must be discontinued promptly when ileus, constipation or abdominal distension develop.
