Your wife had an episode of 'food poisoning' in August 2011 for which she was given a course of antibiotics and supportive medicine. She also has history of urinary infection in past.

I would suggest you get a stool and urine culture done. Meanwhile put her on a milk free diet, give her black tea with lemon, salt and sugar;carrot soup, well mashed khichdi, curd rice and bananas. You can also give her lomotil twice a day till reports come.

You may consider giving her Redotil and Vizzylac. They are over the counter medications. It will help her.

Today’s research indicates that a move toward individualizing the dosing of prescription agents is warranted and it can happen only after physical consultation / Your doctor will know about these drugs.

Hope my answer has been of help.

Wishing your wife good health.
