Hello dear...i have gone through your post in which you have mentioned that your son is having loose motions & the pharmacist suggested you Powergyl syrup.
Powergyl syrup contains Metronidazole+ Norfloxacin
, which are antibiotics against the organisms causing Gastroenteritis
Your pharmacist has suggested this suspecting the same.
But, loose motion without fever
, abdominal pain
or blood tinged stool is most commonly caused by virus & antibiotic is of no use.
If he is having all these symptoms then Powergyl can be used.
And a better treatment would be to replenish the lost fluid by using ORS
(Oral Rehydration Solution) & continue simple, soft, non-spicy diet.
Wishing your son a speedy recovery.
Thanks & Take care.
