I had loose motions 6 days ago. I had used Electral the next day and home-remedies. I had similar sensation 4 days before, even though intermittently the stool was solid all along. I had then visited a doctor, who gave me injection, and I had used Lacto-B medicine since last 2 days. I had visited 2nd doctor today, just to confirm if everything is ok. I have been prescribed Zenflox OZ by the 2nd doctor, and the doctor had advised that it is better to use Antibiotic, even though the loose motions have stopped, to avoid reoccurence later. Is it safe to take ZenFlox OZ and if yes, for how many days (i was prescribed a total of 10 tablets 2 per day) along with Bifilac and Mebex (in case of any worms)? My loose motions are now totally gone away from the last 3 days.
