Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: Is Eldoper capsule an antibiotic?

A: No, Eldoper capsule is not an antibiotic. It is an anti-diarrhoea medicine. It is used to control diarrhoea, which has too much fluid in stools or diarrhoea, which takes time to respond. However, it should never be used without consulting a registered medical practitioner.

Q: How much time does it take for Eldoper capsule to work?

A: It takes about one hour for the first dose of Eldoper capsule to act on the inner lining of the intestine. However, even though many patients respond to one dose, you may have to take more doses to feel some relief. The response varies from individual to individual due to varied physiology.

Q: For how long does the effect of a single dose of Eldoper capsule tablet last?

A: A single dose of Eldoper capsule is effective for about 8–12 hours.

Q: For how long should I take Eldoper capsule?

A: Eldoper capsule should be taken only for the duration, as prescribed by a registered medical practitioner. It should not be used for more than 5-days. If there is no relief even after 5-days it is advisable to consult your treating physician, who will attempt to find other causes of your diarrhoea using specific tests.

Q: Can I take Eldoper capsule with pain killers?

A: Yes, Eldoper capsule can be taken with pain killers. However, it is advisable to take an antacid along with pain killers to avoid abdominal discomfort caused by pain killers.

Q: Can probiotics be taken along with this medicine?

A: Probiotics contain microorganisms that are naturally present in our gut. An episode of diarrhoea leads to the destruction of the natural microbial flora by the invading organism or by antibiotics that destroy them. Probiotics help to restore this damaged microbial flora and help in quick healing. Probiotics can be taken along Eldoper capsule in specific types of diarrhoea only. It is advisable to consult your treating physician before starting probiotics along with Eldoper capsule.

Q: What is Diarrhoea? What causes it?

A: Diarrhoea is a change in consistency and increases in the frequency of stools as compared to normal days. It is an indication of some underlying disease generally. It needs urgent management as there is a loss of excess fluids and salts with each episode of loose stools. It is generally caused as a result of microorganisms that act on the inner lining of the intestines and produce substances that affect the movement and reduce the absorption of water and salts from the intestine. Sometimes it may also happen due to a defective immune system where the body acts against its organs or due to excessive use of antimicrobial agents, which may even kill the good bacteria present in the gut.

Q: What time should I take Eldoper capsule?

A: Take Eldoper capsule with or without food in the dose and duration as advised by the doctor. Keep taking this medicine for as long as your doctor recommends.

Q: Can I take Eldoper capsule for stomach ache?

A: No, it is not meant for stomach ache use. Please consult a doctor before taking any medicine for stomach ache.

Q: Is Eldoper for loose motion?

A: Yes, Eldoper 2mg capsule is used to treat loose motion. Loperamide in Eldoper is an anti-diarrheal medicine effective against acute diarrhoea.
