Welcome to XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query.

Your daughter can take tablet. Paracetamol along with Norfloxacin with Tinidazole combination. There is no contraindication.
If she is having severe diarrhea she may likely to go for dehydration. So you have to give oral re-hydration powder. If the diarrhea persists in spite of Norfloxacon TZ, then it is better to consult your physician as she may need some other antibiotics, stool examination and parentral re-hydration procedures etc.
Wish your daughter a speedy recovery.
