For an average sized adult, if you have to journey via bus for about 7 hours, but you have some diarrhea, how often and how much Imodium (loperamide) can you take?
Start with 2 tablets: Adults should take 4 mg (2 tablets) of Imodium (loperamide) to start, and then 2 mg (1 tablet) after each loose stool that follows. Do not take more than 16 mg (8 tablets) in a day. Effects should take place within 2 days so it might be a good idea to start taking it the day before your trip.
