For Symptomatic relief of Acute Diarrhea: Adult Dose: Take 2 capsules initially followed by 1 capsule after each loose bowel movement.

Discontinue if there is no improvement after 2 days.
For Symptomatic relief of Chronic Diarrhea: Adult Dose: Take 2 capsules initially followed by 1 capsule after each loose bowel movement.
Then reduce loperamide dose to meet individual requirements. When the optimal daily dosage has been established, administer this amount as a single dose or in divided doses.
Or, as directed by a doctor.
Average daily maintenance dose: Take 2 to 4 capsules/day. A dosage of five capsules (10 mg) is rarely exceeded.
If no clinical improvement is observed after treatment with 8 capsules/day (16 mg/day) for at least 10 days, symptoms are unlikely to be controlled by further Loperamide administration.
Missed dose: If a patient misses a dose, just take the next dose if still needed for diarrhea.
