Thanks for posting your query here.

It is quite possible that your ddaughter may be suffering from gastro-enteritis or dysentry. The treating doctor may have felt that she needs antibiotics.

Oflox-Oz is combination antibiotic-antihelminthic (Ofloxacin and Ornidazole) which should cover and treat both bacteria and helmintic (dysentry) infection.

Becelac Forte is Vitamin B12, Rabium is anti-acidity medicine, Meftal-Spas is anti-spasmodic (anti-colic medicine). I am suspecting these have been prescribed based on her symptoms i.e. if she is getting severe colicky tummy pain, she has been given anti-colic medication.

If she is now recovering and not having colic/acidity symptoms, She can take it as and when basis. I would finish the course of Oflox-Oz as suggested by her treating physician.

I hope I have been able to answer your queries.
