Thanks for writing your query.

It would be helpful if you give some more infiormation on the following :-
1. What is the exact location of the pain and the side of the pain (left or right)?
2. Name of the medicines you were given?
3. Any associated nausea?
4. Consistency of your stools?

You can take antacid like Omeprazole 20 mg once a day along with antispasmodic like Drotaverine twice a day after meals. You can do de-worming by taking Albendazole 400 mg at night, if not de-wormed recently. You should take medicines only after discussing with yor treating doctor.

If the problem persists, get an Ultrasound of whole abdomen done.

I hope this is helpful to you.
