Posted on Mon, 29 Jun 2015
Question: Hello Doctor,
My stomach is upset past one day, initially I had a slight pain in the stomach, I've taken only curd-rice and tender coconuts today.
I had loose motions in the evening today and after taking few spoons of curdrice for dinner, I had puked everything out.
I have tablet "eldoper" with me, can I take it for the same and sleep?

Thanks in advance.

Brief Answer:
Gastro enteritis most likely.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for asking HCM.

I have gone through your query. Your problem can be most likely gastro enteritis.

Do you had food from outside or had any foods like meat fish or eggs before the episode?

It is body's own mechanism to remove toxin from body through diarrhea. It will be there for 3 to 5 days. Severe episodes usually subsides within 3 days.

Replenishing fluids and electrolytes is the main treatment for this. You can take ORS , tender coconut, fruit juices. Loperamide can be taken if diarrhea (loose motion) is more, but better to avoid it. You can take lemon tea with ginger also. Curd rice or or bananas or porridge you can take also.But Avoid milk.

You can also take omeprazole (prilosec) or Ranitidine (zantac) which is available as over the counter for decreasing gastric irritation.

Let me know if anything not clear.
I am happy to help you.
Thanks.
