Abdominal pain, gastroenteritis, diarrhea, pain subsiding. Treatment for diarrhea?

Hello, I have been suffering with Gastroenteritis since last Friday, and whilst the abdominal pain has finally begun to subside, there has been no let up in the diarrhea (I have not had any sickness). I have been to see my GP today who said it would clear up in time, but I was not re-assured. My main concern is that the quality of the diarrhea is not improving at all... I have been keeping well hydrated and eating simple foods... do you have any advice for me? Many thanks,

Hello dear,

Presenting with such symptoms, I usually treat my patients with:
1. Tablet Pantoprazole + Domperidone twice daily (to be taken half an hour before food)
2. Anti spasmodics like Dicyclomine preparation twice daily (to be taken after food).
3. Lactobacillus preparations.
4. Antibiotics like Ofloxacin+ Ornidazole preparations, OR based on culture & sensitivity reports to control the causative organism.
5. Oral Rehydration Solution (O.R.S) for maintaining the hydration status & electrolyte balance of the body.
6. Take soft, plain, non-spicy foods.
7. Avoid fast foods & gas producing food products like cabbage, etc.

So, kindly consult a Gastroenterologist & start treatment as advised.
Certain investigations like complete blood count, estimation of serum electrolytes, stool examination & Ultrasound scan of abdomen & Pelvis will be helpful in detecting any pathological cause.

Wishing a good health.
Take care.
