How long do penicillin side effects like diarrhea last?

How long do penicillin side effects like diarrhea last?

Varies: Diarrhea can be caused by a GI side effect of the drug itself, in which case it will go away when you quit taking it. On the other hand, diarrhea can occur from disruption of the normal intestinal bacteria flora and that may persist until a balance is restored.

The diarrhea and cold sweats are the side effects I have. When can I expect total relief?

The diarrhea and cold sweats are the side effects I have. When can I expect total relief?

Depends: It depends on the cause or source. If medication, it needs to flush from your system - each medicine has it's own halflife of clearnace from the body. In some cases, if the med causes a heart rhythm issue, it may not get better and may worsen. Same thing goes for antibiotics - they may induce c-diff colitis and symptoms will not improve. If not improving, seek evaluation and further care. ...Read more

Can 10mg famotidine cause diarrhea?  I take it nearly daily & never get side effects.  But I got diarrhea 1 hour after taking it today.  Related?

If your diarrhea persists on a regular basis, you may need to switch medications. Drink plenty of fluids to remain well hydrated until the diarrhea passes. Good luck. ...Read more

Read that anti-depressants can cause hems because of side effects like diarrhea. Is this true? How long would diarrhea epis have to be to cause them?

Unlikely: Older antidepressants were perhaps a smidgeon likely to cause them due to constipation if left untreated. Thirty years in psychiatry and i've never encountered or read about this. The diarrhea would have to be a near non-stop flood and the patient negligent in reporting the problem and getting the diarrhea treated. It never ceases to amaze me how many people blame their meds for every ailment. ...Read more

Bad diarrhea. Could it be from fluconazole side effects or virus?

Bad diarrhea. Could it be from fluconazole side effects or virus?

Perhaps: Diarrhea is a side effect of fluconazole. But, it's possible that the diarrhea is viral. Did the diarrhea start with the fluconazole? Have you had antibiotics prior to the fluconazole? Antibiotics can cause a type of diarrhea in of themselves. If Fluconazole is for a yeast infection, i would recommend taking probiotics to help with this as well. Go see your pcp if not better. ...Read more
