Thanks for writing in.

I understand your concern. But there is no need to worry.

As you have taken enough antibiotic, it would have disturbed the normal intestinal flora. This is likely to cause indigestion and bowel disturbance. This generally gets resolved over a period of time.

Now continue taking Proviatic or Lactobacillus capsules and gradually you will get your stool formed and frequency of passing stool will be alright.

In addition to the above drugs I also suggest you to take light diet like curd, rice, buttermilk, etc. Avoid taking non-veg for some time. Avoid fried and junk food.

Hope, I answered your query. If you have further query or clarification, please ask; I will be happy to help.

Wish you speedy recovery.
