Hi Charmain,

Imuprofen (Nurofen) - For inflammation, pain and fever. (including sunburn)
Loperamide (Imodium) - Stops diarea
Medazine (Valoid) - relief of nausea, vomiting and motion sickness
Hyospasmol (Buscopan) - Antispasmodic thus for cramps
Erythromycin (Ilosone) - Antibiotic for upper respiratory tract infections
Ciprofloxicin (Ciprobay) - Antibiotic for urinary, gastrointestinal and lower respiratory tracts and gonorrhoea.

It is not wise to take an anti-biotic without consulting your doctor or pharmacist.

Keep well
