What is the pediatric dose of Ofloxacin and Ornidazole for abdominal pain?

Can I give ofloxacin & ornidazole for 6 year old, he is having abdomin pain before going to bathroom for last 4 days, earlier stools were not that watery , last time he went was bit loose. He is fine after going to bathroom, he is going to bathroom 2 times a day, which is not normal for , he only goes 1 time a day. He doesnot have fever. I gave 1 zedott 10dt yesterday night, he is still sleeping, thinking of giving ofloxacin today as we have to do international travel to night. Please prescribe dosage, and if it is ok to give.
