Following is my reply: 1) This appears to be due to cefuroxime ( Zinnat) tablets you are taking. 2) In some individuals, these tablets do cause intolerance and black or clay coloured stools. 3) Please stop the antibiotic immediately and see ear doctor for alternative medicine and ask him if its ok not to take antibiotic.
