Additional therapy/tests is advised....
Thank you for following up.
Please bare in mind that Levocin is an antibiotic used to treat various infections including of upper respiratory tract
, UTI, etc.
As all antibiotics taken orally, it might cause GI problems including bloating
, etc. However, nothing serious would happen to you if you took 2 tablets instead of 1.
Furthermore, you have already completed the course as directed by your doctor, by taking a total of 5 pills although in 4 days.
As per regards to your bloating and reflux, I'd suggest to start taking a course of omeprazole
to relieve such symptoms.
If I was your caring doctor would start an anti-fungal treatment (with nystatin
as a drug of choice) together with otc probiotics to optimize the GI flora.
With regards to Eofil forte, it contains the active ingredients called Diethyl carbamazine (anti-helminthic) and chlorpheniramine
As you are saying to be living in India, where there is a high prevalence of intestinal parasitic infections, you can discuss with your doctor if you are having such problems and to run an examination of stool for ova/parasites.
You are reporting to be coughing. Coughing itself will give you pain, and make you feel weak. The more and the harder you cough, the more weak and pain you will feel.
If the symptoms are little less by today, it means, that your coughing is less, thus, relieving the symptoms.
Your doctor has prescribed Eofil forte for your case among other anti-histaminic drugs. So, as long as it is having effect, you should continue as prescribed.
If after taking omeprazole and simethicone, you will feel the weakness and bloating again, can discuss for another alternative and to further evaluate your GERD problem.
If you have already conducting all the above-mentioned tests, I'd kindly ask to forward the results/reports to me for further evaluation!
All the best!
Feel free to ask me other questions you might have!
