I have undergone the following tests
1) UGI endoscopy for possible GERD, but reports are quite normal
2) Stool test - results normal
3) Stool Culture test - showed significant growth of E.Coli
for which I tool ZO-T -OD for 7 days (ofloxacin + Tinidazole )
4) Physical examnation of anus by a surgeon for mild fissure, the problem has been cured with proper medication.
My main problem still persists i.e. nausea after drinking water/slightly cold water.This persists for few minutes.Even in winter because of this problem, I have to take warm water to drink.
Secondly there is always noise like Gud-Gud-Gud OR Drrrrrrrrrrr Drrrrrrrrr in my lower or upper abdomen area.
Since I am hypertensive for which I am taking
Tenormin 50 (Atenolol) - OD during BEDTIME
Losacar 25 ( Losartan potassium ) - OD . during BEDTIME
Since I am taking above medicine for hypertension for a long time. My problem of nausea is due to the above medicine or not. Please advise or what should I do ?

Do you take your medication on an empty stomach? If so, you may want to take them with food (unless otherwise directed) to see if that solves the problem.
Are you a Doctor, Pharmacist, PA or a Nurse?
