User :   My daughter is 22 year old, Engineering student 36 Kg, She is weak . She suffered from cough and fever 102F for most of the time for two days.She had severe pains in both the legs She was prescribed Azithral, Wikoryl, Rantac and a cough syrup.
Her fever subsided slowly. But she had stomach upset from second day of taking medicines. Her aversion was towards Rantac which she declined to take. She had to go to toilet for at least twenty times per day from the second day of the treatment . She was oprescribed Metrogyl-400 for one and half day. Now Doctor has revised dose of Metrogyl to 200 mg. for three times a day, discontinued Azithral and instead prescribed O2 ( Ofloxacin 200mg + Omidazole500 mg )
