Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have been suffering from dysentery for the last two days. They are watery to semi-liquid stools. I do not have any stomach pain or nausea. My appetite is normal. I have been burping a lot like when burping during acidity. I have been on fasting for the last 19 days with mostly one meal a day along with some fruits. I also had similar symptoms last week, but within 4 hours without any medicine it became normal. I had Satrogyl-O and Lactogut three times. Though I feel a little better, I still have the dysentery. Can you please recommend some medicine? Or shall I continue this medicine for one more day? Or should I visit a doctor immediately?


Welcome to icliniq.com. The main symptom of dysentery is frequent near liquid diarrhea flecked with blood, mucus or pus. Additional symptoms may include fever, abdominal pain, bloating, burping, incomplete evacuation, vomiting, and nausea. If you are experiencing these symptoms, it is likely that you have bacillary dysentery. The medication you are currently using is appropriate, and I recommend continuing with the same treatment. It is crucial to replace the fluids lost due to diarrhea. You can consume coconut water, lemon water with sugar or salt, buttermilk, or ORS (oral rehydration salts) as recommended by the World Health Organization.

If the frequency of diarrhea is not controlled, you may consider taking tablets such as Loperamide or Imodium. The initial dose is typically 4 mg (two capsules), followed by 2 mg (one capsule) after each unformed stool, not exceeding 16 mg in total. Clinical improvement is usually observed within 48 hours. However, it is important to consult a specialist doctor, discuss your condition with them, and take medication with their consent. Be cautious about your diet and avoid consuming raw, unwashed vegetables or reheated vegetables. Always drink purified water. If you are required to fast, be mindful that you may become weaker, so it is advisable to consume an adequate amount of fluids before beginning your fast. Thank you for choosing icliniq.com, and we are here to support you in managing your health concerns.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
