Dioralyte

Dioralyte contains several minerals and electrolytes that help the body during diarrhoea-related dehydration.

When you have a bout of diarrhoea, you lose fluid and vital minerals and electrolytes due to the illness. This can cause dehydration which can have dire consequences.

Dioralyte is very well tolerated due to the fact it contains natural ingredients, and it can be taken by all ages without many side effects. However, some people may develop an allergic reaction, so be aware of any changes to your symptoms after taking dioralyte.

The medicine comes in a powder form in a sachet that needs to be mixed with 200ml of water. Once mixed, it should be taken straight away to maximise the potential of the medicine and reduce the risk of severe dehydration.

What is dioralyte?

Dioralyte is a sachet full of minerals and electrolytes that should be mixed with water. It’s used to treat dehydration associated with diarrhoea.

Dioralyte doesn’t treat the symptoms of diarrhoea itself, but it can help to minimise dehydration where fluid and electrolytes are lost through a bout of acute diarrhoea.

When buying dioralyte online, make sure you’re only ordering it for future use. Due to delivery times, ordering dioralyte for immediate use isn’t possible, and you risk becoming dehydrated. It’s always a good idea to keep some dioralyte in your medicine cabinet for unexpected bouts of diarrhoea, especially if you’re caring for an elderly person or a child.

What’s in dioralyte?

Dioralyte contains the minerals:

  • Sodium chloride
  • Potassium chloride
  • Glucose
  • Disodium hydrogen citrate

When mixed with water, dioralyte can replenish salts, minerals and electrolytes. The glucose in the sachets encourage absorption through the intestines, even if you’re finding it difficult to keep fluids down.

Can I take dioralyte?

Most people are able to take dioralyte due to the natural substances that make it up. However, if you’re allergic to any of the ingredients or if you have a blockage in your stomach or intestines, you should avoid the medicine.

Dioralyte is generally well-tolerated otherwise.

Dioralyte isn’t known to interact with any other medications, meaning that you can carry on with your normal medication routine (unless diarrhoea prevents you from taking other medicines). It can even be used in conjunction with OTC diarrhoea treatments such as Imodium to give you the best chance of a quick recovery.

What are the side effects of dioralyte?

Luckily, dioralyte shouldn’t normally cause any side effects due to the fact that it’s only replacing natural substances within your body. However, some people may be allergic to some of the ingredients. If you notice any symptoms that would indicate an allergic reaction to the medicine, please stop taking it and inform your GP at the soonest possible opportunity.

How do you take dioralyte?

One sachet of dioralyte should be dissolved in 200ml of water immediately before use. The solution should be consumed within one hour of it being made, otherwise it can be kept in the fridge for up to 24 hours. However, we advise that you drink the solution as soon as possible to avoid further dehydration, as this can cause serious health issues and put your body in danger.

You can take a maximum of five sachets in any 24-hour period, but if your diarrhoea lasts for longer than this, you should see your doctor as soon as possible.

Exactly 200ml of water should be used to dissolve dioralyte, as any more or less could reduce the effectiveness of the medicine.

You or your child might find the taste unpleasant, especially as it contains salt, but several flavours are available so it shouldn’t be too bad.

What are the signs of dehydration?

Ideally, dioralyte should be given at the earliest opportunity to reduce the risk of dehydration and loss of electrolytes, but if you notice any of the following symptoms, it’s even more important that you begin treatment as soon as possible, as these are signs that you may already be suffering from dehydration:

  • Increased thirst
  • Dark yellow and strong-smelling urine
  • Dizziness
  • Feeling faint
  • Fatigue
  • Dry mouth
  • Dry lips
  • Dry eyes
  • Producing little to no urine

If you haven’t had a wee in more than 8 hours, have a rapid heartbeat, or notice that your dizziness doesn’t go away, make an emergency appointment with your doctor or ring NHS 111 if it is out of hours.

What medicines are available to treat diarrhoea?

Loperamide is the most commonly used antidiarrhoeal, and in the UK, is better known under the brand Imodium.

As mentioned earlier, it’s safe to take dioralyte alongside loperamide.

If you’re travelling abroad to areas where you might be more likely to experience diarrhoea, your doctor can prescribe certain antibiotics which can ease diarrhoea that’s caused by bacteria.

Alternatively, you can buy dioralyte relief, which contains a type of pre-cooked rice that helps stools to return to normal. This is especially effective if you’re struggling to keep fluids down.
