This was the evening before my 31 hour return trip! OMG. Quick google search, found that Cipro (ciprofloxacin) is the nuclear option that kills everything in your GI. Not to be taken lightly, this drug can have SERIOUS side effects. But the measure seemed appropriate given my circumstances. Sure enough, 12-16 hours later I was ready for the return. Hotel staff got me the med for something like $2 USD. No prescription needed in India.
Seriously, you nuked your GI tract because you had two glasses of beer that contained traces of tap water?
