Hi.. If the diarrheal episodes are persisting then change of antibiotics with further evaluation may have to be considered.. But first supplement with the fluids that can prevent the dehydration and make her feel better.. You can try ginger tea alternatively fenugrek seeds which also helps in preventing diarrhea apart from the antidiarrheal medications...
