Thanks for your query.

From your description, it seems that you took some antibiotic for a fever and loose motion started. If this is the case, then its probably antibiotic induced diarhea or viral gastroenteritis.

In both cases, it will resolve by itself in a few days. It is good to take ORS. The prescription that you have attached is not opening. Can you send the attachment at YYYY@YYYY and address it to my name: Dr Vaishalee Punj.

Seen the attachment.

Detailed Answer:

Hi again,

I have seen the attachment. Last 2 medicines are not clearly written. There is an antibiotic in first 3 medicines by the name Brakke. It will not be helpful with the symptoms. If its antibiotic-induced diarrhea, then Brakke will make it worse.

In my opinion, it will resolve spontaneously.

Hope this answers your queries.
