Continuous loose motions, taking Oflaxacin, Ornadizole, not much help. Alternate solution ?

I m staying outside in college hostel for last 2 months and the food is very spicy here. From last 3-4 weeks i m suffering from loose motion continuously, sometimes less and sometimes very acute with passing of mucus and black loose stool. After consultation with my local physician over phone, i m taking ofloxacin-200mg and ornadizole-500mg combined tablet over the last 15 days or so once daily after dinner, but without much improvement. Especially when the medicine is skipped someday, then it gets worse. I m not having any stomach pain but sometimes gas formation is there, especially at early morning. Can you please help.

Hi dear
Welcome to the Health care magic
Dear you are suffering with bacillary or amoebic dysentery or both and probably you are being partially treated.
In my opinion you should undergo for the stool routine examination and , culture/ sensitivity, and get treated with full doses and full course of medicine according to the culture report. In this way you may get complete response.
Better avoid partially cooked food or the food which is not freshly cooked.
Hope your query is answered,
Thanks

Hi,
Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that you are having infection of the gastrointestinal tract, which needs proper medical attention.

I would also like to inform you that the medicine you are taking is correct,
but you are not taking its proper dosage. It should be taken twice daily.

You can add antacid like Omeprazole 40 mg once a day before breakfast, along with a Lactobacillus preparation to get relief from gas.
Digestive enzymes containing pepsin and fungal diastase will be helpful.

You should take light meals prepared under hygienic conditions. Drink pure water only.

I hope this is helpful to you.
Thanks.
