Brief Answer:
Need complete stool examination..Possible infectious cause

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir.

I understand your concern.

You possibly need to get a complete stool examination to evaluate the cause and subsequent treatment.

Diet rich in fiber is good.

Consume foods like oatmeal and pomegranate.

Drugs like Orno-O one tab twice a day for 5 days will help.

Additionally tab levocet one tab at bedtime daily for 5 days will help.

Further management if any depends on the result of the stool test.

Please take the mentioned drugs under expert medical supervision.

Post your further queries if any.
Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Antibiotic therapy is a must in your case.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir.

I understand your concern.

You seem to be positive for protozoal gut infection/iodamoeba butschlii which is causing you all the symptoms.

For this you need effective antiprotozoal therapy in the form of-

Tab Metronidazole 500-750 mg PO thrice a day for 14 days.
Tab Iodoquinol 650 mg PO PC TID for 20 days.
PC implies post meal.

This will effectively treat all the infection and make you symptom free and feel good.

Please note these drugs have to be taken only under strict medical prescription.

Diet should be in the form of soft meal and fruits like apple.
Avoid fried and fatty foods.

Repeat Stool examination after 3 weeks.

Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Consult your doctor to get prescription.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir.

First of all let me tell you that I have given you the drug details after extensive search of the local pharmacies in XXXXXXX I have also given alternatives which are easily available here in AP. In case the drug is not available, you cannot throw your anger on the doctor .

Many antibiotics are not given without prescription, even though the pharmacy has them in stores. Those drugs can only be procured with a medical prescription of the concerned drug locally available. I have already given you the list Med plus stores in your city.

My details of profession and nationality is provided alongside my profile. I do not like one questioning my nationality or profession. I have given my response politely based on experience and vast research and I expect the same politeness. If you are not satisfied with the response you can ask for refund.

Thank you.
