Hello
Thanks for your query. I understand your concern with the abdominal symptoms for a long duration. Orni o is a combination of ornidazole with oflaxacin which is a combination of antifungal with antibacterial agent. This is a good combination of drugs for your symptoms. You apparently showed improvement which nullified once you stopped the drugs. Hence I would suggest stool culture and sensitivity test to clinch the exact cause so that specific treatment can be started. Endoscopy investigation would be the last resort. Do clarify further if required.
Regards

Hello
It would be a good idea to continue the medication for another 5 days. If still the symptoms do not completely remit then i would suggest stool culture and sensitivity test to make an accurate diagnosis.
