Hello ,
Thanks for your query.     

As you consumed hotel food for 2 days .

As hotel foods if not prepared hygienically it can lead to intestinal infection which can be the root cause of diarrhea and abdominal pain .

Pain in such cases is colicky in nature.

So you need a course of antibiotics & anti-amoebic drugs ,you will be fine with in a day or two.

Several combinations are available in the market ,you can choose any one with the advice of your primary treating physician.

Take plenty of liquids to avoid dehydration ,which may occur after diarrhea.

Hello Chockalingam,

Nice to hear from you again.

It would be unethical and inappropriate to prescribe you scheduled drugs without doing a proper examination.

It is a simple disease which needs treatment for a few days & is very common among Indians.

I suggest you to please visit your physician to get the required prescription. You can ask for drugs belonging to Fluoroquinolones group and also Anti- amoebic medications.
