Hello doctor,

A week back, I woke up and rushed to the bathroom with a terrible stomach ache to throw up. Minutes later, I had mild diarrhea throughout the day after that. Next day morning, on my way to school, I had to open my car door and throw up outside. Yesterday, I did not throw up but had diarrhea three times in the morning and a few times during the day after that. Today, I woke up at 3 AM with a bad stomach ache and had diarrhea and fell back asleep, uncomfortably. I woke up at 6 AM again and had mild diarrhea. At around 12 PM I also had diarrhea. I am interested in finding out when this bug will pass, as I am certainly not looking forward to waking up a terrible stomach ache again. I think I have passed this on to my dad and friend too.



Welcome to

Get physically examined and investigated to rule out the medical problem and treat accordingly. You need diet modification. For details on diet please follow up. Drink plenty of fluid. Keep well hydrated, and have ORS (oral rehydration solution). I suggest the following medicines:

  1. Tablet Omeprazole with Domperidone combination unless otherwise, contraindicated empty stomach in morning 40 mg.
  2. Tablet Norfloxacin with Tinidazole combination unless otherwise, contraindicated after meals with water 400 mg for five days twice daily.

Consult with your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take medicines with their consent. Feel free to follow up anytime with reports. Any other suicide symptoms? Any cold, cough or fever?
