What is the dosage of Ofloxacin and Ornidazole?

I ve been suffering very severe diarrhea for two days, needing the toilet almost every 15 to 20 minutes when I m awake. This is accompanied with a 40 degree fever and very low energy. I took 3 doses of Ciproflaxin 500mg, but with no effect. A med student just gave me ofloxacin and ornidazole (O2) and some rehydration salts. Questions: What is the dosage for O2, two times a day or only one time a day? I haven t eaten for 40 hours, but I have no appetite. Should I eat? What kind of infection might I have that ciproflaxin couldn t treat? Could it be typhoid? The doctor also gave me Pantop-D. I think this is some kind of antacid. Is this necessary? I haven t noticed any problems with acid or stomach pain... Finally, can I continue to take IBprofun with these drugs for my fever and aches? THANK YOU

Hi,

O2 is a combination of Ofloxacin and ornidazole (200+500). This is usually taken twice daily for 3 to 5 days for gastroenteritis. Probiotics should be taken while taking this. You can take curd and bananas which are good probiotics. Ibuprofen should be avoided. You can take Acetaminophen instead.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
