What is Travelers’ Diarrhea?
Sudden onset of painful stomach cramps, loose or watery stools, nausea, vomiting, and gas can be symptoms of Travelers’ Diarrhea, which can last from a few hours to several days.
Travelers’ Diarrhea can ruin your plans
Travelers’ Diarrhea can be caused by viruses and parasites, but it is usually caused by the bacteria Escherichia coli (E. coli) found in contaminated food and drink. Being careful may not be enough…even sipping a drink with contaminated ice or brushing your teeth with tap water in some regions can infect you with E. coli.
Is your destination high-risk?
You can get Travelers’ Diarrhea anywhere, but you’re more at risk in certain parts of the globe. Without treatment, symptoms can last a week or more, ruining your plans.

Aemcolo is a targeted, prescription antibiotic that acts fast to kill E. coli:
- Short, 3-day treatment
- Take Aemcolo only after diarrhea symptoms begin, and you strongly suspect they are caused by a bacterial infection.
In a clinical study, Aemocolo showed:
- 22 hours faster symptom relief than placebo
- 81% of patients cured within 3 days
Aemcolo uses MMX® technology, a special coating that delays release of the medication until it reaches the sites of infection. The result is a targeted release of medicine where it is needed.
