Brief Answer:
He should take Antibiotic.

Detailed Answer:
Diarrhoea could be due to ingestion of contaminated food or water.
I prescribe Antibiotic like Rifaximin 200mg twice daily along with Tablet Rabeprazole 20mg twice daily to my patients with similar complaints.Metronidazole will be added if Amoebiasis is suspected.Oral rehydration solution should be taken.
Please stop the medicine that he is taking now.
As he needs Antibiotic prescription,please consult your doctor.
Nothing to worry.
It will come down.
Hope I answered your query.If you have any questions,I will clarify further.
Wish him speedy recovery.
