One of the key symptoms of the condition is diarrhoea which can be debilitating and left untreated can lead to dehydration and exacerbate the condition. Guidance suggests that loperamide, the active ingredient in Imodium Instants, should be the first line of treatment for diarrhoea providing immediate and effective treatment for the condition and in this case relieving one of the more discomforting elements of the illness.

If you are intending to write about the condition we can help with background information on treatment and provide gastrointestinal experts to comment on the best course of action.
