Ciprofloxacin or Azithromycin

Traveler’s diarrhea is surprisingly common and affects 20-50% of travelers, depending on the region. A digestive tract disorder that causes stomach pain, abdominal cramps and diarrhea, it is brought on by bacteria in food or drink. Runway offers both ciprofloxacin and azithromycin to battle upset-stomach-causing bacteria and allow you to feel ready for the day in no time. Use as directed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Traveler’s diarrhea is an intestinal infection that happens as a result of eating or drinking contaminated food or water. It can be particularly prevalent in developing countries. Food can be contaminated in a variety of ways from pesticides to runoff.

There’s the highest risk of contracting traveler’s diarrhea in the developing world. Places like Mexico, Latin America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The risk of infection varies depending on the type of exposure—from a fairly low risk from eating hot, cooked foods and drinking factory-sealed beverages, to a higher risk while eating raw vegetables and fruits, and drinking tap water.

Typical symptoms of traveler’s diarrhea can include:

  • Abrupt onset of diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Bloating
  • Urgent need to have a bowel movement
  • Malaise (weakness or discomfort)
  • Explosive and painful gas
  • Cramps
  • Loss of appetite

Saying “watch what you eat” can be reductive and too broad but be aware of water and food conditions before traveling. For milder cases, you can take bisuth subsalicylate, like Pepto-Bismol (among other brands) and increase fluids and electrolytes to replenish the body.
