Self-treatment is suitable for travellers:
- to remote rural areas distant from medical help.
- with pre-existing bowel problems such as inflammatory bowel disease where infection may trigger a relapse.
- with pre-existing medical conditions which may be worsened by severe infection or dehydration, i.e. poorly controlled diabetes, renal impairment etc.
- with a tendency to severe travellers’ diarrhoea (on the basis of previous travel experience).
Azithromycin is effective in reducing the symptoms of travellers' diarrhoea, particularly if taken with Loperamide. The symptoms of traveller's diarrhoea should improve within 24 hours of starting antibiotic.
In addition the anti-sickness tablet Avomine can be taken to reduce fluid loss and discomfort.
Choosing the right antibiotic
Azithromycin is the preferred antibiotic to treat travellers' diarrhoea in South Asia (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka) or SE Asia (Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Burma, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines). In other parts of the world ciprofloxacin is the preferred antibiotic.
Treatment with Azithromycin is a single dose of 4 tablets taken together at one time. Take the dose as soon as you get diarrhoea, not before. It is not a preventative.
If there are any side effects the most common are stomach upset, nausea and diarrhoea. For details see the patient information leaflet supplied with the tablets.
Symptoms should start to improve within 24 hours of starting azithromycin. Medical advice should be sought if symptoms are not improving, or are worsening, or if any of the following occur:
- Profuse diarrhoea and vomiting lead to dehydration
- Blood and green or yellow slime in the motions with severe abdominal pains
- Diarrhoea associated with rashes
- High fever and headache with diarrhoea (particularly in malaria areas)
- The anti-diarrhoeal Loperamide and anti-sickness tablets also reduce symptoms.
- Try to get plenty of rest
- Drink plenty of fluids, even if vomiting (at least 3-4 litres/day)
- Continue to eat simple foods such as rice and dried bread, appetite permitting
- Pay attention to personal hygiene, to prevent spread
To combat antibiotic resistance please:
- Only use antibiotics when needed
- Never share antibiotics
- Always complete course as instructed
- Take unused medicine to local pharmacy for disposal
