You do know this offer is more expensive at 63p per pack instead if 49p which is the ops? Even the 8pack is 58p on amazon instead of 49p.



Heat added, these are exactly the same as Imodium in regards to ingredients and do the same job, a 6th of the price as well.

If you have a savers close by go and get their own brand, exactly the same buy even cheaper than 49p.
home bargains stock these all year round at 59p
Something most people don't know... Loperamide is an opioid that doesn't cross the blood brain barrier so has no psychoactive effects. It just binds to the opioid receptors in the gut.

All opioids are constipating as they slow down the gut. Opioids include codeine, dihydrocodeine, morphine, oxycodone, heroin etc.
Well done all. I'm surprised and heartened that the thread has got this far without someone using the emoji BTW. It is another little know fact that loperamide was discovered by a roman apothecary called Slackus Bowelus.

I read that some heroin addicts take very high doses of this during withdrawal!

Actually you can get a high from Loperamide hydrochloride in very high dosages...

Yes...of course. My point was that they’re not much more expensive normally.

Yes, as it's an opioid it can help and diarrhea is a side effect of withdrawal with opioids. Like I said all opioids will make you constipated. Loperamide is marketed for that because it has no psychoactive effects but any opioid would work just as fine to stop diarrhea.

It's not a high like with normal opioids. It's a "dirty" high and not euphoric. You just get some peripheral effects of opioids. I like pharmacology so I read all sorts of stuff lol.
It is just useful to addicts, really, to keep withdrawals at bay. You'd have to be really stupid to take that to get high. Better stick to normal stuff if your aim is to get high.
Loperamide taken regularly everyday will leave you with withdrawal symptoms that rival methadone withdrawal, which is a long-acting opioid whose withdrawals are worse than heroin ones.
Also loperamide in big dosages can cause heart problems (QT prolongation) specifically. As well giving you the normal problems arising from bad constipation. You'd have to keep taking laxatives to have regular bowel movements. Not advised to use it to get high. And you also have to ingest usually stuff like grapefruit juice or quinine to help it cross the blood brain barrier when taking it in big dosages.

I said it doesn't cross the blood brain barrier as we're talking about normal therapeutic usage.
