How Does Loperamide Work? Loperamide 2mg capsules work by slowing down the movement of food through your stomach and intestines, which allows the body to absorb more water, salt, and other nutrients from the stool. It achieves this by blocking certain receptors in the gut that are responsible for contracting the muscles of the intestines. This slows down the movement of the intestines, which allows more water, salts and other nutrients to be absorbed from the stool. By doing this, loperamide can help to decrease the amount of diarrhoea that is experienced. What Does Loperamide treat? Acute diarrhoea Food reaction indigestion Infection allergies Irritable bowel syndrome
