Can I take normet with sprolac and lomotil for loose motion and stomach pain?

hello, I am getting loose motions with stomach ache since 3.00 am. Till 6.00am I almost had 5 motions. I took lomotil @ sprolac @ 4.00am. I got some relief. I am still having loose motion every 6-8 hrs and stomach ache continues. Can I take normet with sprolac and lomotil?

Hi,
From history it seems that you might be having acute gastro-enteritis.
You can take normet and lomotil.
Take plenty of water, electrolytes and ORS liquid to prevent dehydration.
Ok and take care.

Hi. I have been having severe loose motions since yesterday morning. I took 2-2 baquinal tablets in a time difference of 2 hours. Also I was having fever and severe stomach pain. Then from afternoon I took 3 O2 tablets in a time gap of 3 hours each and 1 crocin for fever. Also suggested by a local doctor I took Nor-TZ (as Lomotil were not available with the chemist) once at night. Now this morning, the pain and fever is down but had a severe loose motion and churning in stomach. I have been having ORS since yesterday as I hardly urinated and my tongue was sticky. Please suggest something that can cure this. I cant take off from office as this is a new job.

doctor1 MD

it started about 15 days back with sudden watery motion. loose motion frequency was 5-6 times a day with most of the water with pain.took antibiotics, change food intake. curd,rice,banana included in diet. I felt a srain in left lower side of stomach which is still there with an abnormal feeling. i am still unable to take full normal diet because if i take full diet it started loose motion.

I ve been given metformin by my doctor for the POSD. I ve been noticing some diarrhea and gritty looking stools, along with mucus in the stools for the first time.. I ve been on the metformin now for about 6 months. I just came from lunch, which I didn t finish but I just saw some gritty looking black stool when I went. I ve also been drinking lemonade. I m not sure what this means.

My Father has suffered paralysis stroke in 2005. The doctor has prescribed Ecosprin 150Mg and Amlophin (for B.P.) to be taken daily. But after 1 year, my father stopped them taking regularly and whenver he had high BP he is taking both the tablets.Yesterday he had fever and today loose motions. The BP was high 200/80 and discomfort and aches. A little bit of discomfort near chest... but not sure as he is bit confused. Could it be due to fever or should be contact emergency?

11 years ago- colonoscopy: found nothing, declared diarrhea to be due to ibs. Eliminated triggers: dairy, caffiene, high fat. For years- saving grace was carbs. BUT I still had bouts of diarrhea and was never really normal. (Note: stomach was always flat, unless I overate and bm would quickly shrink back stomach). December 2009- bad abdominal pains: ultrasounds found a bunch of cysts but my doc. said they are not large enough to be causing pain. Weight: 128. (Note: highest in 15 years.) Big Change... Feb 2010- people are telling me i look really skinny. Stepped on scale, 120 pounds (lowest weight in 15 years). Horrible stomach distention and pain, No matter what I eat or drink. when I wake up stomach is somewhat flat, but still pudgy. After ingesting anything, it balloons, 2-3 months pregnant / no relief. Tests: Blood- protein levels off, low iron and b12, celiac test just a little off (but not true indicator that I have the disease, I am told). Colonscopy / endoscopy- biospy for celiac (negative). Found mast cells- h2 allergy cells, which dr said was strange . Said I must just have ibs, and told me to take pepcid for mast cells, but didn t address why I have them. 2nd opinnion- gastroenterolgist said he would have said celiac, but saw biopsy was negative. He was about to dismiss me as ibs and give me pills. Then when I inquired about the mast cells, only then did he actually read my report (and his eyes bulged). He said it appears I might have colitis and put me on pepto for 2 months- then I should call him to give update. Skin allergy test- minor (level 1) only allergic to corn, walnuts and celery, significant (level 2) fish allergies- I don t even eat fish though Please help!! I feel like i m wasting away, and stomach is always in pain and bloated. I am forced to associate eating with pain now. I went off gluetin for 1 week, and didn t notice results but then ate it again when biopsy was negative. I am planning to go off it again for as long as I can, on my own accord. I feel it is the only hope I have now, but it will be hard because I can t eat any milk product, and high fat foods (beacuse of the ibs) hurt my stomach so I have to eat in moderation.
