Welcome to HealthCareMagic,

Loose motions of your daughter are due to antibiotics given. Antibiotics destroys your normal intestinal flora and can cause loose motions. Mox without lactobacillus is more prone to cause loose motions.

You should stop antibiotics, give your daughter sufficient water and lactobacillus tab or pre & probiotic suspension. If loose motions are more, give her ORS powder also.

Hope you found my response to your query informative and helpful.

With good wishes,

Dr.Chandra Shekhar Sharma
