Brief Answer:
Take econorm on empty stomach or 15-20 minutes before meal

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear XXXX,
Welcome back,
I appreciate your responds.

Take Econorm capsule on empty stomach or 15-20 minutes before meal.
It act as probiotic. If you missed dose then take it immediately when you remember and if it is time of the next dose then skip the missed dose.
Keep it regular without the missed dose.

Rifagut is semi synthetic antibiotic and reduce the flatulence and IBS symptoms.
Rifagut and O2 both are antibiotics and you can not take both medicine same time so stop the O2 from tomorrow as your doctor said.
(Earlier I told you medicine which also contain similar properties and action)

Hope I have answered your query.
Feel free to ask further query and I will be happy to answer.

Best regards
Dr. Sagar
