== How Tesco Diarrhoea Capsules Work == They each contain 2mg of loperamide hydrochloride as the active ingredient. Diabetics will also need to know that they also contain lactose. Loperamide is called an antimotility medicine. This means that it works by slowing contractions of the muscles in the bowel, so that food will pass through your digestive system less quickly. The longer the stools are in the bowel, the more water and water-soluble nutrients are absorbed, which makes them solidify. The maximum dose is 8 in a 24 hour period, but with simple problems one pack of 6 should be enough to allow your digestion to settle down and ... Read the complete review

About 3 months ago my little boy caught a nasty diarrhoea and sickness bug which resulted in both my husband and myself getting it too, apart from Diarolyte there was nothing we could really do except wait for it to pass. While the sickness part of the bug went away after 24 hours the diarrhoea didn't. When Jayden had this we had to take him to hospital one night and the doctor there warned us that even after the sickness part of the bug is over the diarrhoea can carry on for up to 10 days! He also advised that if me or Mark caught it to take Imodium until it passed which is what I did until I discovered Tesco do a version of their own at a fraction of the ... Read the complete review

I always like to ensure that my medicine cabinet is fully stocked for every eventuality and a product that I have been buying for a number of years is Tesco Diarrhoea Relief Capsules. There are six capsules contained within a small blue, green and white box measuring 8 cm x 6 cm and located in the upper left hand side is the familiar Tesco logo in grey lettering. However, I always find the product extremely hard to locate on the supermarket shelf, as its' appearance isn't particularly eye-catching and it seems to blend in amongst all of the other pills, tubes and bottles. We are advised that the capsules contain loperamide hydrochloride and can ... Read the complete review

Tesco Diarrhoea relief Capsules When out buying for our recent holiday to Egypt, one of the things on my ever expanding list was diarrhoea tablets. I usually buy specifically branded tablets but since I was already in Tesco, I decided to try these (or hopefully not have to). WHAT ARE THEY? The capsules are available without prescription and are for the relief of sudden and hopefully very short lived attacks of diarrhoea. They contain Loperamide so anyone who knows they are allergic to this ingredient should try something else. PRODUCT AND PACKAGING The capsules are apparently available in packs of 2, 4 and 6. Mine ... Read the complete review

I am usually one for buying the market leading brand when it comes to medicine but sometimes there will be occasions when supermarkets do offer a cheaper alternative that I am swayed by. I was going on holiday to India in November and had so many medicines to buy for my trip and with the fear of getting 'Delhi belly' I decide to bring a packet of these Tesco Diarrhoea Relief tablets to make sure that I would atleast be ok. I normally would purchase Immodium but when buying a few packs these can get quite pricey and they also don't contain as many in a box so for me it was an easy choice. PACKAGING The packaging on these is nothing special really, ... Read the complete review
