Doctor :

User :   I am taking Rabemac DSR tab every day morning, 20 min before breakfast, as prescribed by Doctor... When I started taking this tab, on first day, I got a loose motion...
Doctor :   Ok

User :   Now also I am getting loose motions for 2 to 3 times a day...
Doctor :  
It is a first dose effect
User :   Is it due to the Rabemac DSR tab...
Doctor :  
No problem with it

That is fine
Doctor :  
What is the question mark for?
User :   What is elecrolyte?? Is it a tab??

Mix it in 1 ltr of water
Doctor :  
and drink it instead of normal water
User :   Yesterday, gas got generated many times... How many days will it take for me to get well?

User :   No... As you have suggested I am taking Tulsi Green tea
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :   Continue with Rabemac DSR

Doctor :  
it will help you
User :   Also, the burnings have come down compared to last week... However, I still feel little burnings in my body (Stomach, back) some times...

User :   Today I started feeling little chills (cold breeze kind of feeling)
Doctor :   Ok

User :   What could be the reason??
User :   When can I get recover completely?
Doctor :   Right now if it was just once

Doctor :  
I would recommend to ignore it
Doctor :  
and carry on with the normal diet and medications
Doctor :  
If it repeats then I would suggest to get your temperature checked
User :   I went for the check up for my cough problem yesterday... Doctor told me that the infection has come down... Yesterday, temperature was also normal...
Doctor :   Fine

Doctor :  
No issues then
Doctor :  
But there will be slight variations
Doctor :  
If you feel feverish/chills, take a dose of paracetamol for timebeing
Doctor :  
as you have already been prescribed with an antibiotic
Doctor :  
nothing is required right now
User :   From Yesterday night I stopped taking Paracetmol and Allercet tabs that doctor suggested earlier with Aziwok... Now, I am taking only Aziwok for 2 more days...
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
But you can take paracetamol as needed
Doctor :  
not more than 3 per day
User :   OK... If I feel feverish/chills again then I will take paracetamol...
Doctor :  
Right
User :   Stopping the paracetamol suddenly - Can it be a problem when I am still taking Aziwok?
Doctor :   No

Doctor :  
It is not true
User :   I did ask you the above question because I did not get proper sleep yesterday night unlike other days...
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
If you had chills/fever
Doctor :  
then it is a possibility
Doctor :   otherwise no
Doctor :  
Paracetamol is exclusively for fever
User :   I think I had little chills...
Doctor :  
with/withour antibiotic
Doctor :  
Continue it till you are free
Doctor :  
and allercet is a slight sleep inducer
Doctor :   You were adjusted to that

Doctor :  
Stopping it would have cause little changes
Doctor :  
But not a problem
Doctor :  
other than sleep issue
User :   In fact I was taking Dicloren tab (not the paracetamol)
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :   It contains Diclofenac
Doctor :  
But Allercet is a sleep inducer
Doctor :  
If it was Dicloran 100 then that also induces pain
User :   No, it was Dicloran A
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
That contains paracetamol and diclofenac
User :   yes...
User :   How many days it will take for me to get recover??
User :   recover from gastric/acidity??
Doctor :   You will recover in another 3 days
Doctor :  
with the Rabemac SR
User :   Do I need not worry about loose motions?
Doctor :   Electral is sufficient

Doctor :  
for now
Doctor :  
No need to worry
User :   I noticed one more problem... While sleeping, if I keep my hand on my stomach/chest then I am feeling little burning kind of feeling?? Is it due to the same problem (gastric/acidity)?
Doctor :   Yes

Doctor :  
It is interrelated
User :   OK... Will it go off when I recover?
Doctor :   yes

Doctor :  
Sure
Doctor :  
Continue the Rabemac SR for 15 days
User :   OK.. What kind of diet rules you will suggest me? Can I take curd rice?
Doctor :   But take the advise of your treating doctor to continue it for 15 days

Doctor :  
Avoid cold drinks, cofee
Doctor :  
lemon, spicy foods, non veg

If you smoke/drink, try to avoid that

User :   Is Curd rice fine??
Doctor :  
Absolutely

Avoid sour foods as well

They are worse than spicy foods

Such foods

Like a sour orange juice
