Based on the individual homoeopathic constituents of Diarrheel S, therapeutic possibilities result for acute and chronic diarrhoea, gastro-enteritis, dysentery, meteorism and tympanites – insofar as gastro-intestinal or liver-pancreas disorders may be responsible for these symptoms. To enhance the binding of toxins, we also recommend additionally taking commercially available medicinal charcoal tablets

several times a day. The patient should, however, wait at least 30 minutes after taking the homoeopathic preparation Diarrheel S, before taking the charcoal tablets.

In the usual dosage, however, Diarrheel S is not only suitable as adsorbent in toxicosis of the widest variety, but especially also for dyspepsia, diarrhoea, dysentery as well as for tympanites and meteorism, as their cause may be gastro-intestinal and hepatopancreatic disorders.

Diarrheel S is indicated in all cases of gastro-intestinal dysfunction, especially when  the faeces are diarrhoeic, and, therefore, for pancreatitis, septic diarrhoea in  the course of other diseases, ventricular and duodenal ulcers, cholangitis, cholecystitis, cholelithiasis, disturbed growth of bacteria, etc.

The dosage is adjusted according to the disease, the clinical picture and the stage of the illness: 1 tablet dissolved on the tongue 3 times daily. For acute disorders, massive initial-dose therapy, up to 5 tablets every 10-30 minutes.
