How does the Diarrhoea Pack work?
The Diarrhoea pack contains four packets of medications Ciproxin, Imodium, Buccastem and Dioralyte.
Ciproxin anti-biotic reduces the duration you suffer from diarrhoea. The active ingredient is ciprofloxacin, which attacks the bacteria directly that causes the diarrhoea. Only one tablet of Ciproxin is taken at a time, it is a high dose treatment. A second tablet is then taken 12 hours later.
Dioralyte contains salts including: sodium chloride, potassium chloride, sodium citrate and carbohydrates. These ingredients help replace bodily fluids and salts that are lost as a result of diarrhoea. Dioralyte sachet should be taken after each loose bowel movement.
Imodium treats diarrhoea along with gas, bloating, cramps and pressure in the stomach and bowel. Imodium tablets are taken at the onset of the illness. You should then take one tablet after each loose stool until the illness subsides.
Buccastem will help provide immediate relief from nausea and vomiting that can be caused by traveler’s diarrhea. Buccastem should be placed in the area between your gums and your upper lip two times per day until you no longer feel nauseous.
