J Int Med Res. 1977;5(3):195-8.
A multicentre trial was conducted to compare Lomotil and Imodium in the treatment of acute non-specific diarrhoea in general practice. A total of eighty-three patients contributed to the study and were randomly allocated to one of the two treatments. No statistically significant differences were found betwwen the drugs in their efficacy and speed of action in alleviating diarrhoea or in their palliative effect on nausea/vomiting and abdominal pain when present.
