Cipla-Loperamide uses and description

Sort by popularity
Cipla-Loperamide - Cipla-Loperamide slows the rhythm of digestion so that the small intestines have more time to absorb fluid and nutrients from the foods you eat.

Cipla-Loperamide is used to treat diarrhea. Cipla-Loperamide is also used to reduce the amount of stool in people who have an ileostomy (re-routing of the bowel through a surgical opening in the stomach).

Cipla-Loperamide may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Cipla-Loperamide is a synthetic anti-diarrheal indicated for the control and symptomatic relief of acute nonspecific diarrhea and of chronic diarrhea associated with inflammatory bowel disease. Cipla-Loperamide is also indicated for reducing the volume of discharge from ileostomies. In man, Cipla-Loperamide prolongs the transit time of the intestinal contents. It reduces the daily fecal volume, increases the viscosity and bulk density, and diminishes the loss of fluid and electrolytes. Tolerance to the antidiarrheal effect has not been observed. Cipla-Loperamide is an opioid receptor agonist and acts on the mu opioid receptors in the myenteric plexus large intestines; it does not affect the central nervous system like other opioids. It works specifically by decreasing the activity of the myenteric plexus which decreases the motility of the circular and longitudinal smooth muscles of the intestinal wall. This increases the amount of time substances stay in the intestine, allowing for more water to be absorbed out of the fecal matter. Cipla-Loperamide also decreases colonic mass movements and suppresses the gastrocolic reflex.
