Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My wife, around 40 years old, has anterior abdominal pain. She has the urge to pass stool most of the time. She says it is a band-like pain stretching from left to right. She had constipation a couple of days ago. Now stool is normal. She had a similar issue a couple of months ago but then had diarrhea. She was given tablet Oflox TZ and tablet Sporlac-DS, and that issue was cured. Kindly help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. This looks like an intestine infection. I would suggest the same medication for three days, and for pain, I would suggest tablet Cyclopam (Dicyclomine and Paracetamol). Also, ask her to avoid oily and spicy food and intake more liquids.

Thank you.

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