For past 2 months I've had mild abdom. cramps and bowel habit changes (more frequent; undigested food). Could it be caused by prolonged antibiotic use?

For past 2 months I've had mild abdom. cramps and bowel habit changes (more frequent; undigested food). Could it be caused by prolonged antibiotic use?

If this allows an organism called Clostridium difficile to grow, it is possible to get stool changes and/or diarrhea. Sometimes, antibiotics can cause school changes even on their own. If your stool changes persist, you should get checked out. Good luck. ...Read more

Constant Diarrhea for 4 days (also at night), with internittent stomach cramps. Loud bowel sounds. No nausea or fewer. Causes?

Hard to say but: Common things being common, it's most likely infectious but without better defining the frequency, volume, exacerbators, associated symptoms and examining you and your stool, it could be many different things like hormonal, exposure related, or noninfectious inflammation.
