Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Please give her tablet Ofloxacillin with Ornidazole twice a day after food, tablet Pan-D twice a day before food, capsule Nutrolin B twice a day after food. Loperamide has just stopped her loose motions and given her symptomatic relief. You will need to complete this course for five days. Also, give her food that is less spicy and less oily. Ask her to drink lots of water. Do not worry, she will be fine by the end of the course of medicines.
