Brief Answer: Infection/ inflammation in Gastrointestinal tract Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. The symptoms as mentioned in your post is attributed to either infection or inflammation in the Gastrointestinal tract. Presenting with such symptoms, I usually treat my patients with: 1. Tablet Pantoprazole 20 mg twice daily (to be taken half an hour before food) 2. Anti spasmodics like Dicyclomine preparation twice daily (to be taken after food). 3. Antibiotics like Ofloxacin+Ornidazole preparation twice daily (to be taken after food) And it is also needed that you take certain precautions regarding your diet & lifestyle, such as: 1. Take soft, plain, non-spicy foods 2. Drink lots of water to maintain adequate hydration 3. Avoid fast foods & gas producing food products like cabbage, etc. 4. Avoid smoking & alcohol. 5. Keep away stress, think positive. 6. Exercise regularly & practice meditation. If symptoms still persist, it will be better to consult a Gastroenterologist & get a proper physical examination done to find out the exact cause. Investigations like complete blood count, stool examination, Colonoscopy & Ultrasound scan of abdomen will be helpful in detecting any pathological cause for the symptoms. There is no need to worry, you will be fine. Please let me know if I can clarify further. Wishing a good health. Take care.

Brief Answer: Kindly view the details Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your follow up query. 1. Ranbaxy Zifexim is an antibiotic combination of Ofloxacin & Cefixime. It is indicated in case of Gastrointestinal infections 2. Razo 20 is an antacid, which prevents excessive acid formation in stomach. 3. Rinifol contains lactobacillus and multivitamins, which helps in the process of absorption of food & strengthens the Gastrointestinal tract. 4. Cyclopam is a combination of an anti spasmodic agent (Dicyclomine) & analgesic (Paracetamol). It provides relief from spasmodic abdominal pain. So, they can be taken as advised by your Doctor. If you still find difficulty, then kindly get the investigations as mentioned in my previous answer, for detecting any pathological cause for the symptoms. Wishing you a Good Health. Please let me know if I need to clarify further. Take care.

I had a stomach flu since Friday night, I threw up alot over the last 2 days and have had very bad diahrrea. It was very watery and today it is grey to black but a little more solid. I feel much better today. I am drinking gatorade and lots of water. Am I in the clear now? While I was sick I had horrible abdominal pain and alot of gurgling in my stomach. I cant recall having the stomach flu this bad before. Both my daughters had it earlier in the week. It seemed to take at least 2 days in between us getting sick. Im hoping my husband wont come down with it, so far he shows no symptoms. How can he avoid this HORRIBLE bug?
