Stopwatch is a medicine that can be purchased without a prescription. Its main task is to treat the first and subsequent symptoms of diarrhea. It is extremely fast in action, sometimes one dose is enough to feel better.
Stopwatch is therefore designed to counteract the negative effects of diarrhea, such as weakening the body or dehydration, which is sometimes dangerous for children.
In Poland, Stoperan is the most commonly used medication against diarrhea. It has a root safety profile and the therapeutic substance used in it is extremely effective. Therefore, the World Society for Gastroenterology (WGO) recommends Stoperan to treat diarrhea problems independently.
In order to recover faster from diarrhea, electrolytes should also be used.
How does Stopwatch work?
The action of Stopperan can be felt already in the first hour after taking it. The healing substance contained in it is bound with receptors, which are in the intestine, thus calming down their peristalsis, and prevents the need for frequent emptying. Stopperan also has a beneficial effect on the absorption of water from the intestine, which prevents dehydration and affects the consistency of the stool.
Stopperan does not irritate the gastrointestinal mucosa, does not change the intestinal flora and has a mild effect on the stomach.
The drug is metabolized in the liver and expelled along with bile.
For whom is Stopwatch?
Stopwatch can be used in adults, the elderly and children over 6 years of age.
Stopwatch can be used for both acute and chronic diarrhea. It contains a universal substance which prevents the occurrence of diarrhea. It is also effective in the case of infectious diarrhea, for example during gastric flu.
