Ofvic OZ Syrup

Prescription Required

Introduction

Ofvic OZ Syrup is a combination medicine used in the treatment of diarrhea. It relieves the symptoms of diarrhea such as stomach pain, cramps, and loose stools. It also promotes easy passage of gas to reduce stomach discomfort and kills diarrhea-causing microorganisms.

Ofvic OZ Syrup is taken with or without food in a dose and duration as advised by the doctor. The dose you are given will depend on your condition and how you respond to the medicine. You should keep taking this medicine for as long as your doctor recommends. If you stop treatment too early your symptoms may come back and your condition may worsen. Let your healthcare team know about all other medications you are taking as some may affect, or be affected by this medicine.

The most common side effects are nausea, dryness in mouth, metallic taste, and headache. Most of these are temporary and usually resolve with time. Contact your doctor straight away if you are at all concerned about any of these side effects. This medicine may also cause dizziness and sleepiness, so do not drive or do anything that requires mental focus until you know how this medicine affects you. Avoid drinking alcohol while taking this medicine as it can worsen your dizziness. Lifestyle modifications like having fiber-rich diet, increase fluid intake and regular exercise can help you to get better results.

Before taking this medicine, you should tell your doctor if you are pregnant, planning pregnancy or breastfeeding. You should also tell your doctor if you have any kidney or liver diseases so that your doctor can prescribe a suitable dose for you.

How Ofvic OZ Syrup works

Ofvic OZ Syrup is a combination of three antibiotics: Ofloxacin, Metronidazole and Simethicone which treat diarrhoea. Ofloxacin kills bacteria by preventing them from reproducing and repairing themselves. Metronidazole kills other microorganisms in addition to bacteria by damaging the DNA. Together, they treat your infection effectively. Simethicone is an antifoaming medicine which disintegrates gas bubbles and allows easy passage of gas.
