Hello doctor,

I have had loose motions for two days. I have been advised to take the tablet Cifran CT. Is it safe to take this type of antibiotic in loose motions?



Welcome to

You have diarrhea due to gastroenteritis. Cifran CT (Ciprofloxacin and Tinidazole) is a suitable antibiotic for your condition. I suggest you take it twice daily for three days. Also, I suggest you take the tablet Loperamide 4 mg twice daily for three days. It will reduce the diarrhea motions. Good hydration with enough amount of fluids is required. Consult a specialist doctor, discuss with them, and take medications with their consent.
