Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Enzoflam is an NSAID pain killer medication, and NSAIDs can cause gastric irritation. Your symptoms appear to be indicative of a gastro-enteritis (probably due to giardiasis or amoebiasis), and hence I feel that taking Enzoflam could probably worsen the gastritis. There are other pain-relieving medication which are more gastric-friendly and would be more appropriate in this situation. Even if you would like to take Enzoflam, it's better to take it along with an anti-ulcer medication like Ranitidine (Zantac) - available over-the-counter.

Also, avoid spicy and oily foods and take a bland diet. Drinking plenty of fluids, especially cold milk, can also help alleviate your symptoms.

Best wishes,
Dr. Sheeba Stephen
