Hi,
Welcome to health care magic,

Did you have some lactose tolerance or milk tolerance or breath hydrogen test?

Here,The symptoms of diarrhoea and bloating and flatulence could be the adverse effects of the medications and could be of some other functional bowel like IBS or it would be a lactose possibility.

Just eliminate the diet containing lactose products like milk ice cream, and cheese, bread and baked goods, cereals, salad dressings, candies, and snacks,whey, curds, milk by-products, dry milk solids, and nonfat dry milk also contain lactose.

Seek a gastroenterologist opinion and let them do some work up rule out other suspicions like IBS and functional bowels which are more likely.

Regards
