    Good evening Madam. Sorry about that. When exactly did you notice the waist pain. Any history of trauma or physical stress or exertion? Do you also have pain anywhere else? Any fever or headache etc? Answers to these questions will throw more light as to the cause of the pain

    Good morning. Sorry about that. This means you need to start regular targeted exercise and stretches to help relieve the pain an stress. You can get someone to help massage your back with balm 2x a day. You can take tab diclofenac 50mg 2x daily for about 2days to manage the pain. But please take paracetamol instead if you have peptic ulcer. Please let me know if you have more questions. Thank you

    Ok. You can take tab diclofenac 50mg once you notice the pain. The pain is stress related. Please try to get as much rest as you can. Take care

    Hello madam. Sorry about that. Do you mean you have 400mg tablet of loxagyl to the 15day old baby? That is an an adult dose. Babies are given Syrup. Please give the baby ORS and zinc tablets but make arrangements to take her to the hospital for evaluation and treatment as soon as possible

    No. Not the baby, the mother is the one purging. it was the mother that took the 400mg Loxagyl. So I was asking if she can take another tablet since the one she took did not have effect.
    Dr. Ogechi M answered:

    Ok. If it's up to 8hrs,then she can take another dose. You have to be a little patient. The drug does not work automatically. The drug is taken 3xdaily for 5days. She should also take ORS for strength. Let her see a doctor if it continues. Take care
