Niklof-O Tablet


Introduction

Niklof-O Tablet is a combination medicine that is used to treat diarrhea and dysentery. It prevents the growth of microorganisms to treat bacterial infections. It also promotes the growth of good bacteria in the gut for proper digestion.

Niklof-O Tablet is a prescription medicine that is to be taken as per the prescription or as suggested by the doctor. It should be taken with food, but it must be taken at a fixed time to ensure better efficacy. Do not consume more than the recommended dose, as this may have harmful effects on your body. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. The treatment must be completed even if you feel better.

Niklof-O Tablet may lead to some side effects such as nausea, headaches, dryness of mouth, etc. To overcome any such side effects, it is advised to eat a healthy balanced diet and drink plenty of fluid. Maintaining good oral hygiene can prevent or manage the dryness of the mouth. If any of the side effects get aggravated, contact your doctor immediately. If you experience any allergic reaction (rashes, itching, swelling, shortness of breath, etc.), you must consult your doctor immediately.

Before taking this medicine, you should tell your doctor if you have any problems with your liver or kidneys. Also, tell your doctor if you are on any medication for any health condition. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also consult with the doctors before taking it. Avoid drinking alcohol as it can cause excessive dizziness with this medicine.

If you are a known allergic to the medicine, you must refrain from using this medicine and consult your doctor. It is advised to take proper rest during the course of treatment for the medicine to work effectively.

Uses of Niklof-O Tablet

Benefits of Niklof-O Tablet

In Treatment of Diarrhea

Diarrhea is a condition in which you frequently pass loose, watery stools. Niklof-O Tablet helps treat diarrhea by killing the bacteria causing infections as well as prevents them from multiplying. Niklof-O Tablet makes the stool less watery as well as reduces the frequency of loose motions. This helps you to stay well and do your daily activities without any problem. Niklof-O Tablet also restores the level of good bacteria in your stomach and thus prevents stomach upset due to the antibiotics. Since diarrhea causes loss of fluid from the body, drink plenty of fluids to make sure you stay hydrated.

In Treatment of Dysentery

Dysentery is a bacterial or parasitic infection in which you pass loose and watery stools with blood and mucus. You may have severe stomach cramps, nausea, and vomiting.

In order to prevent the spread of infection, it is advisable to always wash your hands after using the toilet.

Ornidazole is an antibiotic which kills bacteria and other infectious microorganisms by damaging the DNA.
