Diphenoxylate-Atropine Information:

What is diphenoxylate/atropine?

Diphenoxylate/atropine is a combination drug used to stop diarrhea. Diphenoxylate is the active ingredient that works to stop diarrhea by slowing movement in the intestines called peristalsis. Peristalsis is the relaxing and contracting movement that travels down the intestines, causing a squeezing action. Once this action ceases, the body has more time to absorb liquids that were consumed creating harder stools. Diphenoxylate is an opioid drug like morphine or oxycodone. Atropine is added to diphenoxylate to discourage drug abuse and addiction by producing a feeling of nausea and weakness in the consumer if too much medication is ingested. 

How do I take diphenoxylate/atropine?

Diphenoxylate atropine comes as a tablet or a liquid to be taken orally. This medication is usually taken once every four hours until symptoms are under control. In some cases this may take up to 48 hours. Then the dosage may be reduced accordingly. Only use the measuring device provided if measuring liquid diphenoxylate atropine, especially if the dose is for a child.

Before taking diphenoxylate/atropine, tell your doctor if:

  • You are taking prescription or nonprescription drugs, especially sedatives, sleeping medications, muscle relaxants, barbiturates, narcotic pain medications, and antihistamines.
  • You regularly drink alcoholic beverages.
  • You have or suspect other intestinal problems such as colitis, dysentery, food poisoning, or intestinal blockage.
  • You have a history of kidney, liver, or heart disease.
  • You are currently dehydrated or are deficient in certain minerals like potassium.
  • You are pregnant or breast feeding.
  • You have Down’s syndrome or myasthenia gravis.
  • You are allergic to diphenoxylate, atropine, or any of the ingredients in this medication.
  • You have an underactive or overactive thyroid.
  • You have an enlarged prostate or trouble urinating.

Stop using this medication and contact your doctor at once if you experience a serious or severe side effect.

What if I forget to take a dose of diphenoxylate/atropine?
