The loose motions that happened could be due to teh augmentin, but if they are not controlled with the Vizylac, it could be some other bacterial infections. Now that Gramogyl has been started, continue it for 3 dayys more. Then if still the symptoms are not controlled, then think of a taking a second opinion.
