Brief Answer:
Try with probiotic first, if it is not helpful than antibiotic.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to HCM
I have gone through your query.

Since when you have loose motion.
Norflox is an antibiotic, it definitely will help if the loose motions are infective in origin
If it is collitis you may need to add a tablet of ornidazole. You can consider tablet like Norflox TZ.

I would have asked you to take probiotic like sporolac or ecobion first and observe if it does not help go for norflox or/and ornidazole, that is norflox TZ.

Hope this helps.
Take care
