Antibiotic effects: It's quite possible you're experiencing side effects from the antibiotics. Depending on how 'bad' your condition is now, will determine the best course of action. Azithromycin usually isn't 'that bad' in terms of causing diarrhea, but if you give us more info here -I think the Health Tap community can help. Diarrhea more than 3x a day is something I pay attention too. Chicken soup for now may help
