Detailed Answer:
Thank you for posting your question in healthcare
This is Dr. Swarnava Dattagupta answering your query.

I understand your concern.
Metrogyl for lifetime may control your symptoms but antibiotic for so long has adverse effects. We have to find the reason behind this chronic diarrhea. I would suggest you the following-

Modify your diet. Take small frequent meals a day. Take more fruits and dietary fibers. Avoid fatty or junk food.
Start exercising like brisk walking, jogging etc. These increase metabolism.
You can take metrogyl or ofloxacin-ornidazole combination for 7days.
You can take normaxin-RT twice daily for 15days along with.
You can take ursodeoxycolic acid 150mg twice daily.
You can take pantoprazole-levosulpiride combination once daily before breakfast.
Get a complete hemogram, liver function test and colonoscopy done.

You can consult your doctor for prescription of the above.
Get back to me with the reports or consult a gastroenterologist.

Hope I have answered your question.
