Side effect: This is a side effect from the antibiotic. If the diarrhea does not go away in 2 or 3 days see a doctor and check for c diff (very unlikely).

Contact Ur doc: Problems with one med does not mean they will all be that way.Contact your doc and find a new one th complete your treatment.Sometimes a single shot of long acting penicillin will avoid the GI issues and prevent the long term complications of untreated strep.
