Vizylac and zifi is a right combination,continue this

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for asking on this platform

I have gone through the prescription.
Most common cause of stomach pain and vomiting in this age is gastritis secondary to infection.
Zifi contains cefixime an antibiotic and it has a good coverage for organisms causing stomach infection.
Vizylac contains probiotic and it helps in maintaining normal gut flora which is damaged during any infection.
As there is no vomiting,medication for vomiting is not needed.If he feels nauseated or there is any episode of vomiting,please give ondem as advised by your doctor.
I suggest you to continue the same.Give plenty of fluids with bland diet(less oily and spicy).

I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any more query.
