Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood the concerns.
Since your daughter is just 4.5 years old and weighs 13 kg all the medications should be given as prescribed by the pediatrician after clinical evaluation and examination.
It is also advisable to go for the tests of stool and blood along with ultrasonography of the whole abdomen. This will further help to know the proper diagnosis and helps in managing such problems.
Do not treat kids at home as delayed diagnosis can cause complications in future which can be troublesome for the baby and costly too.

Hello doctor, Last night I had severe loose motion. The situation became very worse and I could not wait upto the morning., There was a Zenflox-OZ tablet in home. I took it along with some electrolyte salt water. It has worked. Now, in the morning I am worried if it will have any side effect since I had to take it in empty stomach. And how long shall I continue the medication and what is the recommended dosage. I am a male, age 33 years.

For years Ive been bloated, gassy and cramped. I cant gain weight. I wake up with gas and bad taste in my mouth. I have no sinus infections but I always have bad breath ( I brush and floss daily). Ive done almost every test possible and there all clear. My doctor says its IBS and there's nothing he can do, to help (which I find hard to believe). Im a 43 yr old male 5' 11" and 140lbs.
I calculated my diet at approx. 2800-3000 calories a day. My job is not physically demanding and Ive stopped weight training.
Any help would be just great, thanks.
