My son is five years 11 months old, 25.5 kg, and has had diarrhea since yesterday. He had six episodes yesterday, and in the morning, in one hour, he had five times. It is not too watery. His stomach is paining too much. I gave him probiotics, Carmicide syrup twice, and ginger juice twice yesterday. But it is not reducing. So today, I have given Cyclopam syrup 5 mL. Could you suggest some medicine that could stop the contractions or something like Loperamide which we use for adults? Today is a very important day for him, and he needs to go out. He had antibiotics four days back. He did not have any food from outside. He was not even able to sleep properly because of the pain. Kindly help.
Per your description, the medications for the child are proper. I suggest you add syrup Rantac (Ranitidine) five milliliters twice a day (to be given half an hour before food) for five days along with the above medications. In children, we usually do not suggest medications like Loperamide as there may be a build-up of infection. However, if it is very concerning, and the child is otherwise clinically stable, you can give a single dose of enuff sachet (two sachets). Give this at least three hours before you intend to go out. Please do not repeat the above dose, as it may lead to a build-up of infection.
I hope you find it helpful.
