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.
Regards, Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi
