User rating for this question
I had a sinsus infection and was started on augmentin 875 for 10 days, Had to switch out after 5 days due to stomach related issues. Md switched to zithromycin for 5 more days. Sinsus infection not completely eliminated. Had to go back to my PCP and get another antibiotic, Ceftin 500mg bid x 10days. My issue now is my bowel movements, they are small and difficult to get out to my rectum. Have tried several agents, ducolax supp, senna, Fleet enema, PEG etc. They are getting slightly better but still having issues, Also started on probiotics for colon. Any other advice on how to clear up the GI issues. Txs XXXXXXX
