Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Diarrhea is a common side effect of antibiotics. Some advice that I can give to you are :

- Drink enough fluids. To counter a mild loss of fluids from diarrhea.
- Choose soft and easy to digest foods. These include applesauce, bananas, and rice.
- Consider taking probiotics.
- Take over the counter medications such as Imodium.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
