THE MOST ABUSED OF ALL ANTIBIOTICS
I overheard my aunt having this dicussion with her friend;
Just take two tablets in the morning, then repeat at night, and you will be alright. ‘Thank you ma’ she replied, saying she had it in her bag already, with only the lack of a glass of water preventing her from taking it. In my curiousity I asked what the problem was, and she complained bitterly about her tummy discomfort, noise making, and passage of loose stool. My 2 year old boy passed watery stool this morning too, but I have given him Flagyl and he will be fine, she continued. We had a very lengthy interaction afterwards. You just wonder how people learn to adapt to situations.
Something else surprised me days after. I was with a friend on a sunny afternoon who had been stooling since morning, and I was trying to ask some important questions, only for him to bring out a pack of Tetracycline capsules from his pocket, and smiling he said; I just had to help myself with this.
Someone once told me this; whenever I plan to take plenty sugar/drinks, I act fast by taking Flagyl 1st, so that I will not purge afterwards. Wonders shall never end!
Evidences show that most acute-onset diarrhoea are noninfective and self limiting, requiring no antibiotic therapy. So, whether you do nothing, use Flagyl or any Gbogbonise(Agbo-Jedi), it should resolve spontaneously. I haven’t used Flagyl/Tetracycline in years, but boy, have I had episodes of diarrhoea? In fact, I’m currently nursing one.
The most interesting part of all these is that, this ‘wonder medication’ plays an important role in halting/combating many infectious processes, but you’ve turned it into chocomilo(sweet) and still expect it to work as an antibiotic agent when it really matters, just continue dreaming. The bacteria will only fold arms and be licking chocolate in your bloodstream, and even become obese. This is what is called drug resistance.
The next time you experience such, my advice is simple; reduce unnecessary food intake(rest your digestive system), take more fluids/ORS, and contact your doctor(medical/orthodox) before going to Flagyl, which if prescribed, must be used for a medically acceptable duration.
You ate barbequed fish, rice, chicken, pounded yam, coke, star, palm wine and shawarma on the same day, and then began to look for Flagyl; you deserve to stool for a month sef. Lol
