For future reference it's spelt: Antidote (In greek it means; Given Against.)

Antidotes are manufactured by, releasing small amounts of a specific toxin into the body and collecting the antidotes that the body manufactures to help kill this toxin.

Imodium works kind of like 'Morphine', It will slow down the activity in the Large Intestine (Myenteric Plexus, to be exact.). It is not the same kind of toxin that can have an antidote.

If you have taken too much, do not worry. Imodium is not a drug you can easily overdose on however it does have some rare side effects such as;

  1. Severe stomach pains
  2. Nausea
  3. Vomiting
  4. Skin Rash
  5. Dizziness
  6. Dry mouth

If you have any of the following signs it is worth it to check with your doctor.

Better safe than sorry.

Thank you!
