Please recommend appropriate medication.
Possible Acute Gastroenteritis, will take a few days to resolve..
Dear XXXXXXX XXXX, Welcome to HCM,
I've gone through through your query and understand your concern.
Now from your description it sounds like Acute Gastro-enteritis (stomach bug) which generally takes a few days to resolve ..
Nothing too serious at the moment , follow the advises below :
Completely avoid any kind of outside food and take simple home made soft bland diet for the time being..
Drink only Mineral water for the time being..
WHO-ORS solution , dissolve 1 XXXXXXX in 1 ltr of mineral water and finish it up within first 2 Hrs(from beginning ) , then dissolve another XXXXXXX in another 1 Ltr and finish it up within next 6 Hrs and finally dissolve the third XXXXXXX like that and finish it up in the next 16 Hrs..
Cap PANTOPRAZOLE 40 mg , 1 Cap daily 20-30 min before breakfast for next 7 days
Tab METRONIDAZOLE 500 mg Three times daily for the next 10 days
Tab CIPROFLOXACIN 500 mg Twice daily for the next 7 days
Take natural probiotic like yogurt , it'll sooth your gut and provide relief..
Please Keep yourself hydrated by drinking a lot of water ..
Smoking and alcohol is strictly prohibited (if you do at all)..
Try to avoid milk at any form( other than yogurt and curd) as it worsens the scenario ..
With these measures if followed properly , you should be better in about a week.. try to be at home resting for the next few days..
Also maintain proper hand hygiene after toilet with anti-bacterial hand wash..
Let me know how you stay in the due course..
Don't worry..feel free to discuss if there's any more doubt..
