Thanks for the query.
Lopamide tablets do not stay in body for 9 days. Our body removes the waste products from whatever we consume, in a regular manner. So, you need not worry about the tablet you have taken few days back to be causing you constipation now. You should have plenty of water regularly. Include vegetables and fibre in your diet. Also do regular exercise which will keep your physical activity at optimum.
Hope I have answered your query. Please let me know if any further queries are there. Thank you.

hello... dont worry about the medication you have taken... you need to start with brisk walks daily for 1 hour to improve bowel movements...include lot of fiber like fruits, nuts, salads, brown rice, nachni in your diet...avoid refined and processed foods..drink lot of water...drink 2-3 cups of green tea / can also do yoga to help you.. rest positive..
