Dioralyte Sachets prevent dehydration by replacing fluids lost due to diarrhoea or acute vomiting. The sachets contain a pleasant-tasting powder, which is dissolved in a glass of water. This adds electrolytes to the water, which helps the body to absorb more fluids. Dioralyte can be used by people of all ages, including infants. Preventing dehydration is especially important for the elderly and the young.


Dioralyte is most often used alongside an antibiotic in treating traveller’s diarrhoea. This is a condition that occurs after consuming contaminated food or drinking water, usually in a foreign country. It is most often caused by a bacterial infection, though in some cases, it can be caused by a virus or parasite. There are a number of precautions that can be taken while travelling, which will minimise your risk of contracting traveller’s diarrhoea. Avoid drinking tap water, and only eat food that has been properly prepared. It is important to take care of your own hygiene as well.

Dioralyte will help to replace water and lost electrolytes when treating diarrhoea. To prevent it, drink bottled water and use it to clean teeth, avoid ice cubes and wash hands before eating.

One sachet of Dioralyte should be taken after every loose bowel movement. Open the sachet, and empty the contents into 200ml of fresh drinking water. Stir until the medicine has dissolved completely, and drink the mixture. 200ml is required for the correct electrolyte balance, so keep as close to this quantity as possible. If no drinking water is available, boil the water and let it cool. To be safe, boil and cool all water before treating an infant with Dioralyte.
The solution can be refrigerated but should not be stored for more than 24 hours.
