How Furamet Syrup works

Furamet Syrup is a combination of two antibiotics: Furazolidone and Metronidazole which treat stomach and intestine infections. Furazolidone works by preventing the formation of the bacterial protective covering which is essential for the survival of bacteria in the human body. Metronidazole kills bacteria and other infectious microorganisms by damaging the DNA. Together, they treat your infection effectively.

He got fever+loose motion today
Dr. Pranav Gupta
Child Specialist
Hi. Fever can be best treated symptomatically with PARACETAMOL. We need to ascertain the cause of fever and treat it. I would advise you to get your son examined by a paediatrician if fever persists.Most diarrhoeas are viral in origin. The good thing about viral diarrhoea is that they resolve in a few days on their own. You need to make sure that your son is adequately hydrated and he is taking plenty of fluids.Your queries were being answered by paediatrician Pranav Gupta.
