Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi sir/madam,
I am glad that your daughter has recovered from diarrhea.
Since your child has recovered, fever medication (para+mefenamic acid), vomiting medication (domperidone) can be stopped.
Antibiotics are usually not recommended for diarrhoea in children. Therefore Ofloxacin+metronidazole can be stopped unless it was bloody diarrhoea.
Thus second opinion is not needed. Stop all of the above mentioned medications, you can continue with sporlac for a week as it is good for the child's gut.
Take care.
