Pharmacological Class
Pharmacological Properties
Mechanism Of Action
Loperamide hydrochloride acts by slowing intestinal motility and by affecting water and electrolyte movement through the bowel. Lopeshal binds to the opiate receptor in the gut wall. Consequently, it inhibits the release of acetylcholine and prostaglandins, thereby reducing peristalsis and increasing intestinal transit time. Lopeshal increases the tone of the anal sphincter, thereby reducing incontinence and urgency.
Side Effects
Contraindications
Lopeshal is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to Lopeshal or to any of the excipients, in patients with abdominal pain in the absence of diarrhea.
