Can blueberries cause diarrhea while on amoxicillan ?

I am type one diabetic. I took 9 amoxicillan caps, (two caps per day), for a sinus infection. I then ate a large number of blueberries. I developed bad diarreha for 48 hours. Many undigested blueberries came out in my stool. I took amodium to control it. I no longer take amox or Imodium and do not eat berries but stool is still loose after one week. I quit taking stool softner at night before bed time. I quit eating all bran cereal. I still have loose stool. I am 61 years old and have diabetes under control with an a1c of 6.2. What is your guess as to why I still have loose stool?

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Do you have associated nausea, vomiting or fever? You are having either a Gastrointestinal Tract Infection or Indigestion. You may want to get yourself examined by a Physician and if necessary get a Stool Routine and culture to rule out the infection and the causative Organism. You will require antibiotics and Anti Diarrheals. Gradually begin to eat bland, easy to digest foods bananas, rice and chicken. Stop eating if your symptoms return. Avoid dairy products, caffeine, alcohol, smoking and fatty foods until you feel better. Get adequate rest and Drink plenty of fluids.

Wish you Good Health.
