Customer Question

I had acid reflex this AM, so I forced myself to throw-up several times...My symptoms went away...but my stomach has been upset all day with some soft stool. I have 3 tablets of
Sertal Compuesto and Diacort. I remember taking them last yr when I had diahrea. Advisable to take them in this case also?

Hi there,

Diacort is a steroid --not needed for soft stools as there is no blood or fever---not indicated.

Your symptoms are likely due to the simple stomach bug.

Serta compuesto helps to relieve stomach pain and also diarrhea.

So you may try serta compuesto alone.

This is an international medication not available in the US.

Peptobismol is available in the US which will work just fine as well for these symptoms.

Please drink plenty of fluids, and stay on bland diet till your stomach settles down.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
