Healthy adults usually don’t experience side effects from antidiarrheal medicines. However, side effects may be a concern for older adults or people who have health problems. Call your doctor if you notice any side effects.

Loperamide side effects may include:
Abdominal pain
Constipation
Dizziness
Nausea or vomiting
Bismuth subsalicylate side effects may include:
Constipation
Blackened stools and/or tongue
Ringing sound in the ear (called tinnitus)
