Hidrasec is a medicine for the treatment of diarrhoea.
Hidrasec is used for the treatment of symptoms of acute diarrhoea in children over three months of age. It should be used together with an abundant liquid intake and the usual dietary measures, when these measures are not sufficiently effective on their own to control the diarrhoea, and when diarrhoea cannot be treated causally.
Racecadotril can be administered as a complementary treatment when causal treatment is possible.
What Hidrasec contains
The active substance is racecadotril. Each sachet contains 30 mg of racecadotril.
The other ingredients are:
- Colloidal anhydrous silica,
- polyacrylate dispersion 30 per cent,
- Apricot flavour
Always give Hidrasec to your child exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
Hidrasec is supplied in the form of granules.
The granules should be added to food or mixed with water in a glass or baby bottle. Mix well and give immediately to your child.
The recommended daily dose depends on your child’s weight: 1.5 mg/kg per dose (corresponding to 1 to 2 sachetcs), three times daily at regular intervals.
In children weighing from 13 to27 kg: one sachet per dose.
In children of approximate weight more than 27 kg: two sachets per dose.
Your doctor will tell you how long the treatment with Hidrasec will last. It should be continued until your child has two normal stools, not exceeding 7 days.
To compensate for the loss of liquid due to your child’s diarrhoea, this medicinal product should be used together with an adequate replacement of fluid and salts (electrolytes). The best replacement of fluid and salts is achieved with a so-called oral rehydration solution (please ask your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure).
