Has anyone used a particular diarrhoea tablet whilst on Apixaban? I sometimes get an upset tummy on holiday and would like to take some tablets to be prepared. I can ask a pharmacist here but would also like to hear from anyone on Apixaban who has used a particular tablet. Going to Portugal so I know I could get help there also but I like to be prepared taking paracetamol etc with me, kind regards, Heather
Does anyone know which diarrhoea tablet cou... - AF Association
Hi Heather, it would be much safer to check that with your pharmacist....they have got a magic book that tells them what can be taken with what.....it's really not something we should comment on, sure you will understand.......have a great, event free holiday.....John
Thanks John I will check tomorrow, would rather take something with me than go to pharmacist in Portugal, Heather
I use a Spanish one called Fave De Fuca. I'm on Apixaban. The Spanish chemist said it would be ok and that it was a natural product. Works very gently usually at first attempt.
Why do we always get bunged up when we travel???
That's a laxative, Koll, whereas Heather's after a diarrhoea pill. But you're right, we do tend to get bunged up on holiday and need a laxative. I think it's the change in diet, so I take some fibrogel every day which works well.
I'm not on apixaban, but imodium and warfarin has been fine for me in the past.
Agree check with GP/Pharmacist but my sister who has AF, swears by Immodium instants which are easy to take and very effective.
Advisable to check with your doctor but I would think any generic diarrhoea tablet would be fine, I'm on Rivaroxaban (Xarelto) and take a prescribed laxative called Laxido which unfortunately works a bit too well sometimes, to regulate I take diarrhoea relief and anything with loperamide hydrochloride is basically Imodium! best of luck to you.
