No.: Some antibiotics may upset your stomach. Sometimes the illness you are treating causes stomach pain. Please call your doctor today, who prescribed the antibiotics and discuss this to see if you need to change to an antibiotic that does not upset your stomach. if you don't, the abdominal pain may get worse!
