A member asked:

While taking levaquin (levofloxacin) and vancomycin, stools became soft but no diarrhea. now a week after done with meds, still a bit soft. should this resolve?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Sounds like you: were very sick and I certainly hope you have recovered from that ordeal. Yes GI effects from antibiotics typically recover themselves after 1-2 weeks. Using probiotics and/or yogurt and live culture stuff may help with repopulating your colon with beneficial bacteria. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.
