Help control your diarrhea symptoms with IMODIUM® A-D Caplets. From the #1 doctor-recommended anti-diarrheal brand, IMODIUM® A-D works faster than the leading prescription diarrhea medications containing diphenoxylate and atropine. Each caplet of anti-diarrheal medicine contains 2 mg of loperamide hydrochloride with a proven formula that works with your body to slow down your system and restore its natural rhythm and balance. These anti-diarrhea pills help treat and control symptoms of diarrhea due to IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)*, acute, active and Traveler's diarrhea. The convenient tear-away packaging makes them ideal for use anywhere, both at home or on-the-go.*Imodium is not indicated for IBS, but can treat symptoms of diarrhea associated with IBS. Talk to your doctor if you think you have IBS.
Think the product is very effective however I agree that the packaging is terrible. Can't get them out without using sissors. That being said, I give shopping online with Target a #5 for sure. Orders are delivered quickly and it's a very easy way to go.
Love the tiny pill. HATE the packaging. Diarrhea time is not when you want to be struggling with this packaging. This is like cold-medicine-gelcap packaging-- except with a thicker paper backing that is not meant to be peeled off; a thicker plastic that takes a half hour of folding back and forth before you can tear it open (if you're lucky); and they're packed individually, so if you need two, you'll be in deeper "stuff" literally. I switched to the larger caplets that come in a jar because of this. They're difficult to swallow, but it beats walking around with the tiny caplets and a pair of scissors in my purse.
I bought a small amount to test this product at the advise of my doctor; however due to my inability to open the package I never was able to use the recommended amount. I inadvertently crushed the pills, lost a few attempting to extract them. I am going to experiment with a liquid version..
