Let me brief you.
The cause is generally infective - either parasitic or bacterial.
As you persist to have loose stools and give history of eating outside, it is better that you take a course of antibiotic.
We generally suggest ciprofloxacin/oflaxacin with tinidazole to take care of both bacteria and parasites
As these are prescription only medication
you need to get a prescription from your doctor to obtain it.
It is easily available at any pharmacy with a prescription.
what is the dosage for these
Continue taking lot of fluids and electrolytes.
can i have curd rice for lunch
Sporolac is available over the counter and you can take this thrice a day.
dosage for medicines please...
You can have curd rice and other diet which are soft.
Sporolac is available in a single dose - available as
I mean containing 1.25 billion cells per tablet.
what is the dosage for other medicine u gave
Antibiotics are available in the dose of 500mg
A physician can give you the details about it along with the frequency in his prescription.
Have you followed what I suggested?
if you can suggest the dosage too
As dosage of medication/frequency depend on the body weight, severity of the condition and general condition,
without a clinical examination, it is not ethical to suggest them to you.
I would advice you to take a prescription from a local doctor.
DO you follow?
Are you there?
sorry...was on a call
Do you have any other query?
thank u so much for your help
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
