Travellers’ diarrhoea is very common and affects roughly half of travellers when they go abroad. The majority of cases involve people travelling from a developed to a developing country. The Travellers’ Diarrhoea Pack contains all the medications and supplements to make sure that when you go on holiday, you are fully prepared. Each diarrhoea pack includes supplements that help you rehydrate more effectively, as well as medications that fight the cause of the diarrhoea, stop lose bowel movements and provide relief from nausea.
This diarrhoea treatment from HealthExpress.eu is ideal if you intend to travel to an area where there is an elevated risk of travellers’ diarrhoea. All you need to do is complete a consultation form online, which is completely free and confidential. This consultation form will be checked by one of our doctors who will provide a prescription if you can safely use all the medications in the diarrhoea pack. All our orders are shipped from a registered pharmacy and sent via free overnight courier service.
What is included in the Travellers’ Diarrhoea Pack?
The comprehensive Travellers’ Diarrhoea Pack includes antibiotics, oral rehydration aids and medications that stop symptoms like loose bowel movements and nausea.
Research has proven that taking a short course of antibiotics can reduce the amount of time you are ill. Ciproxin contains the active ingredient ciprofloxacin, which affects bacteria directly in such a way that it can’t repair itself or spread, which makes it vulnerable to your body’s natural defences. Ciproxin is very effective at treating large numbers of bacteria, especially the Gram-negative bacteria, Salmonella, Escherichia coli and Shigella, which are usually responsible for causing travellers’ diarrhoea.
Dioralyte sachets in the Travellers’ Diarrhoea Pack are rehydration supplements which contain elements like sodium chloride, potassium chloride, sodium citrate and carbohydrates (pre-cooked rice powder). All these ingredients help your body to replace the water by electrolytes (salts and minerals) you lose when you are ill. Replacing these electrolytes helps your body to absorb water better.
Imodium in the Travellers’ Diarrhoea Pack can provide short term symptomatic relief and also prevent dehydration. It contains the active ingredient loperamide hydrochloride, which influences receptors in the intestinal walls to slow down the movements of your intestinal muscles. This not only helps remove the discomfort of lose bowel movements, but by slowing down digestive transit, it allows your body more of a chance to get nutrients and moisture from the food and liquids you take in.
Travellers’ diarrhoea also makes some people feel nauseous; this is why the diarrhoea pack includes Buccastem (prochlorperazine). It provides immediate relief from nausea by preventing messages to the areas in your brain controlling nausea and vomiting.
How do I take it?
You only need to take Ciproxin for one day for it to be effective. You take one tablet in the morning and another 12 hours later.
One sachet should be taken in a glass of sterilised water after each loose stool.
Take two tablets to start off with and then take a single tablet after each loose stool until you feel better.
Place one tablet between your gums and upper lip, twice a day until the nausea is gone.
