Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
It is not a side effect of these medicines. You may be having Diverticulitis or Internal Hemorrhoids which are bleeding. You need to get yourself examined by a General Surgeon to rule these out. These are not life threatening, you an just relax and consult a Surgeon at the earliest.
Wish you Good Health, Take Care.
