A 70-year-old female asked:

How long can I take imodium (loperamide) for.?

Usually 1-3 days: With mild, routine diarrhea, a patient can let nature clear her bowels the first day. Then medicines can be tried, such as Imodium (loperamide) for a couple of days, just to decrease the frequency of diarrhea while her body is getting rid of the problem. Drinking or eating just little bits, is helpful (not over-eating nor over-drinking). For anything more than mild symptoms, the doctor needs to evaluate.
