About AD EE 10MG POWDER 1GM

AD EE 10MG POWDER 1GM belongs to a group of medications called 'antidiarrheal' used to treat symptoms of acute (short-term) diarrhoea in adults and infants greater than 3 months of age. AD EE 10MG POWDER 1GM can be administered as a complementary treatment when acute diarrhoea cannot be treated casually. Acute diarrhoea occurs when there is a sudden onset of 3 or more loose/watery stools per day for at least 14 days. 
 
AD EE 10MG POWDER 1GM contains ‘Racecadotril’ which is a prodrug (inactive form) that gets converted into ‘thiorphan’ (active form) which acts on the epithelium tissues of the small intestine. It helps in decreasing the intestinal hypersecretion (losing) of electrolytes and water induced by the cholera toxin or inflammation. Thus, AD EE 10MG POWDER 1GM exerts rapid antidiarrheal action, without changing the duration of intestinal transit (bowel transit time or time of food travel in the digestive tract).
 
Take AD EE 10MG POWDER 1GM as prescribed by your doctor. You are advised to take AD EE 10MG POWDER 1GM for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you depending on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience certain common side-effects such as headache, rash and skin redness. Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.

Talk to your doctor if you have a fever, blood or pus in stools, are suffering from chronic diarrhoea, diarrhoea caused by antibiotics, kidney or liver problems, or prolonged or uncontrolled vomiting. If your condition does not improve even after taking AD EE 10MG POWDER 1GM for 7 days, consult your doctor. Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. AD EE 10MG POWDER 1GM should not be given to children younger than three months of age. Avoid consuming alcohol along with AD EE 10MG POWDER 1GM. Keep your doctor informed about your health condition and medicines to rule out any side-effects.

Medicinal Benefits
