Hope this helps!

Diarrhoea for 3weeks whilst in Asia. Taking doxycycline daily. Have just been prescribed 800mg ofloxacin and 2 sachets of bioflor daily. Is this ok?

Diarrhoea for 3weeks whilst in Asia. Taking doxycycline daily. Have just been prescribed 800mg ofloxacin and 2 sachets of bioflor daily. Is this ok?

Diarrhea: Based on the countries you traveled to and the food habits the cause of diarrhea can be variable. A stool study done by notifying the lab to look for certain pathogens may be the best option. A certain stool test can determine if there is inflammation (lactoferin). Emperic abx may not always help and may not be needed. Best of luck ...Read more
