Does Advil cause loose stool?

I had knee repacement surgery on 6/28/11. After I went off the pain meds, (Tylenol 3), and went on Advil, I started to have a very loose stool(almost liquid) daily, in the morning. Should I be concerned about liver damage? I am no longer taking anything for pain, but this persists. I am 62 years old, am 5 5 tall, and weigh about 200 lbs. I take Nexium for GERD, Crestor for cholesterol (last numbers were excellent), Prempro for hormone replacement, and Zyrtec for seasonal allergies.

Hello,

No, Advil does not cause loose stool. Take probiotic capsules, everything will be alright.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
