Hello doctor,

I am suffering from loose motions since last three days. I have visited a doctor. He advised me Oflox 200, Entroquinol and Deulac forte for three days. I have taken the medicines as prescribed until today but even then they have not reduced. I am traveling, so it is difficult for me. Kindly suggest the course of action.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Since there is no response, you need to change the medicines. You should have Oflox OZ (Ofloxacin and Ornidazole) 200 mg or 500 mg twice a day for five days along with tablet Pantoprazole 40 mg before breakfast for five days. Also, for symptomatic relief, you should have tablet Racecadotril (Redotil) 100 mg up to three times till stools stop. This will reduce stool frequency and output but need to continue above mentioned antibiotics for five days. More importantly, you need to have plenty of water and ORS (oral rehydration solution) 100 to 200 ml with each stool output.

Thank you doctor,

Redotil is for three times a day?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Yes, it is three times a day until stool normalizes. If it is not available, then you can also have Norflox TZ (Norfloxacin and Tinidazole) instead of Oflox OZ.
