Hello Dr since last year I have been suffering from XDR TB last year on 16th November Drs have removed my left lung due to tuberculosis Currently I am taking ethionamide 2 tablets ammoxycilin clauvulante 1000 mg 2 tablets monopass 9 gm hansepran 200 mg linozolid 600 mg daily. I took Capreomycin 500 MG for eight months . My problem now is I have loose motion since March . I have to go to 4 to 5 times to latrine. I daily take nexpro rd 40 mg tablet before meal. I tried Sporlac . It isn’t very effective . My doctor said it’s due to medicines. But 4 5 times is too much. Kindly advice.

Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
I have gone through the prescription you have attached.
Amongst these drugs, amoxicillin clavulinic acid can cause diarrhea.
So you can stop taking amoxicillin clavulinic acid and see if diarrhoea stops.
