User :   ok thank you that is twice daily after food

Doctor :   I should also mention here that taking antibiotics indiscriminately without a physician's advise will lead to antibiotic resistance and the same antibiotic will not act in you again.

Doctor :   As for the diet, take bland diet and have more oral fluids
User :   ok i will keep that in mind from next time
