Hello
Welcome to health care magic forum
It suggests bleeding some where in the gastrointestinal tract that come along with stool in altered form .Most probably it will be controlled with the medication you are already taking .or you can change the medicine after consultation with some physician or surgeon.If still no relief get colonoscopy done to find the cause & treated accordingly.
Wish you good health

hello,
Although in some cases, an unusual stool color is harmless and can be attributed to a particular food or medication -- but not always. Black or red stools can indicate internal bleeding somewhere in the gastrointestinal tract.
So better take your medicine for one more day so that your antibiotic coverage is completed and then discontinue it. And if you still face the same problem even when you have discontinued your medication better visit a gastroenterologist..
take care..
