I am having problem with my stomach. Its been a week now I am having loose stool ( orange and/or maroon color). especially after eating It causing problem. No pain as such in stomach but at least 5 to 6 times I go to toilet in a day. Please help.
I have not taken any medicines except the Lomitil 1 tab per day. when I take tablet it stops for 4 to 6 hours.
Please let me know if this is a serious trouble or please suggest any medication. If you feel I should contact any specialist doc I will. Thanks

Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for writing in

Your information is suggestive of infection of GI Tract may be collitis also

You may try a probiotic for five to seven days twice a day, if that does not work go for a stool report and start antibiotic as per the report

In any case avoid contaminated meals and foods

Hope this helps

Hi XXXXXXX

As per the online forum rules we are not allowed to prescribed medicines without examining the patient

No these are common and not XXXXXXX

See your physician and ask him to prescribe medicines or go to the chemist for OTC brands

Hope this assures you
