Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Dear Ciplox TZ is better than the Norflox TZ in gut infections. Use ORS sachets , use plenty of oral fluids. use tablet Sporlac DS twice a day for five days. If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
