Horrible packaging.

The medication is fine is you can open the package and swallow the caplet. When one has "the runs" a scissor and second person shouldn't be needed to get relief. The caplet is larage and sticks to my tongue.

Worst packaging ever

I bought these for travel. When I needed one, it took 3 people to pry open the blister pack. Since I only travel with a carry-on suitcase, I had no knife or scissors or nail clippers to use. The scoring where you are supposed to tear did not work; you couldn't stab through the back; you couldn't separate the backing from the plastic. What a nightmare. Why must you use such packaging. I will never buy these again.

Product works well and rapidly. But packaging is horrible. Difficult to open. Also, limit of 24 tabs per box? In the past, I was able to buy a bottle of tablets, with a higher count. I recommend with reservations.

Why are these tablets not available in a bottle? Many people cannot open the blister pack. It takes a very long time to cut all the tablets from the hard plastic. End result, time wasted and very sore hands.

Great Product but Needs Re-packaging

3 out of 5 stars
DRAIA - 4 months ago

This product works better than most diarrheal products on the market. My issue is that it requires the JAWS of LIFE to open the aluminum plastic packets. I need to use a scissors to open. This packaging style does not lend itself to quick access. I would recommend this product if they re-designed the packaging for easy access which is why I only give it a 3 star versus 5 star rating..

Inconvenient Packaging

Woody - 5 months ago

Why are Imodium tablets not available in a bottle? I like how effective the product is, but detest the packaging. It takes scissors or a sharp knife to fight my way through the packaging. It is unreasonable the amount of time and effort it takes to get a pill out to take it.
1 reply from Consumer Care team - 5 months ago
Please accept our sincere apology for the inconvenience and frustration you have experienced with the packaging of the IMODIUM® caplets. In September 2019, the FDA announced a decision to limit loperamide containing medicines, including IMODIUM®, to 48 milligrams (or a 24-count pack size) to help address the misuse and abuse of loperamide while preserving access to an essential, over-the-counter remedy for diarrhea sufferers. In addition, the FDA has also required that the caplets be packaged in individual doses. We invite you to visit the following link to learn more details about this change: https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drug-safety-and-availability/fda-limits-packaging-anti-diarrhea-medicine-loperamide-imodium-encourage-safe-use. As a possible alternative, you may consider trying the Imodium® A-D Oral Solution. This is a mint-flavored liquid that comes in a bottle. We encourage you to discuss this with your doctor!

You should 1) make getting the caplet MUCH easier and 2) offer a 1mg dosage, that indentation on the caplet is almost useless.

I would fire your CEO for not fixing the packaging problem after reading all these reviews. I had to use fingernail clippers to get the pills out of the packaging.
