Enterogermina

Many of you will be wondering what this is. Well, this is a medicine which I found written in prescriptions of many a quack for diarrhoea, especially in children. And most of them did not have a prescription for ORS, the mainstay of any treatment for diarrhoea . . .

Last week, I thought of looking it up. It is of course a medication with no clear cut evidence of any benefit. It was more interesting toto read the first paragraph in the product insert.


It looks like a very complicated way of saying that this medicine may not be a medicine at all . . . It is as good as eating chocolates or drinking horlicks . . .

Another medicine to dupe a poor sick man into poverty . . . Another interesting aspect. This 'medicine' is easily available, but we have difficulty getting stuff like plain doxycycline, buscopan, dihydrochlorothiazide etc . . .
