Diarrhea, watery and loose stools, fever, abdominal pain. Prescribed electoral and loperamide. Will diarrhea subside by itself? - Online Doctor Chats
How are you doing
I am 37yrs old
Did you eat anything from outside?
First thing is that you have to take plenty of fluids
Take 1 packet of electral and dissolve in 1 litre water
Drink as much as you can
I want you to be drinking atleast 3-4 packets in a day
it is equally bad
ok.... for stopping stools?
But its a prescription drug and I cannot give it to you in this forum
Diarrhoea will get controlled
But if after having it, you have diarrhoea, we will start you an antibiotic
You will need to speak with a physician in person
you mean if dairrhoea does not get controlled.... I will need antibiotics ?
Usually, if you have 1 dose of this drug
the diarrhoea will get controlled
ok..... if diarhhoea gets controlled....what do I do about fever etc?
It'll go away on its own
Its due to the infection
but infection will go away without antibiotics?
Its not something we need to worry about
it is difficult to say, XXXXXX that its an infection or its food poisoning
We will have to wait and see
ok.... should I wait for a day?
also anything for stomach ache?
That should also subside on its own, XXXXXX
A drug called hyoscine is given
Again its a prescription drug and we cant give it in this forum
So what I suggest is
That you have lots of fluids
and just wait for 1-2 hours
If the diarrhoea doesnt get better, see a physician and ask for the drugs I told you
ok, thanks Doctor
In all probabilty, you'll be fine in 1 day
Thanks for consulting me
