Not yet, contact MD: It's too hard to counsel you to stop without weighing so many different things, including (but not limited to): why you're taking the medication, when the watery stools started relative to when you started the antibiotics, and how far into your course you are. That said, contact your prescriber (or pharmacy if not possible) for this real-time discussion, as it *may* be an effect.
