Welcome to ,' Ask a doctor service ,'
I have reviewed your query and here is my answer .
Yes , you can take rifaximin .
Also add any probiotic .
Please make sure that you do not get dehydrated. In such case , ORS is recommended .
Usually rifaximin is sufficient to control diarrhea .
But if diarrhea is more frequent then you may take racecadrotil .
If you need any further help , you are welcome .
