Well, about your son- I think you can safely stop using metronidazole
if he doesnt have vomiting
, fever, loose stools and irritability any more. These are the danger signs of gastroenteritis
. But frankly, 2 vomitings in a week do not really warrant a stool test
. Anyways, if your son now doesnt have any of the above mentioned bad signs, you can stop giving the antibiotic to him. How many doses have you given by now? Has any medicine gone inside his stomach, or each time has he just been throwing up the drug? In any case, I think you can stop the drug. If you see any of the bad signs I just mentioned, you make take him to your pediatrician
I hope I have been successful in clarifying your doubts. Take care and stay healthy.
