Hi

Thanks for posting your query

Norflox is an antibiotic, it definitely will help if the loose motions are infective in origin

If it is collitis you may need to add a tablet of ornidazole

Best is try a probiotic first and observe if it does not help go for norflox or/and ornidazole

Hope this helps

Hi

Welcome back

Anyway Norflox is not going to harm you but I would suggest you take one tablet twice a day for a minimum of five days

Hope this helps
