Hi and welcome to HCM.
I wouldnt give her these medicines at this point. These are antibacterial and antiparasit drugs and it should be given if we have confirmed diagnosis. This sounds like viral gastroenteritis or food poisoning especially if her symptoms regressed so fast so these medicines wouldnt be effective at all. it can just make problems.
Ondansetro,the same...dont give it to her if she dont have nausea and vomiting now. I suugest to visit pediatrican if you want to start with medicines who will do test to prove the right causative agent.
Wish you good health.

Hi, thanks for the query.
Due to diarrhea and vomiting there is loss of plenty of fluids from body.
With this loss of fluid we also loose many essential minerals form body.
Since child is fine according to you so medicine is not required at all ,but replacements of fluid is necessary.
O R S powder is o t s ( over the counter) product so please give this powder for 4-5 days 3-4 times in day.
Good luck. Dr. HET
