I am taking one loperamide tab daily from the last more than one year. And getting diarrhoea relief with this. It is advised by medical shop friend that this should not be taken for a long time. Please advise.

How safe is loperamide for 2.5 years old toddler. My son had successful surgery for hirschsprung disease at 6 months of age. Bt the food transit is on the higher side. Are there any bowel management programs which can help/medication.

Loperamide has many side effects and for me, it has hardly any useful role in controlling motion. Child is only 2.5 years and has many years for bowel training. Further bowel management depends on surgery performed for which attending surgeon is best person to guide.
