I'm pretty sure that I'm on an antibiotic for a virus, I had cold like symptoms can I stop it it? It is causing me bad stomach pains and loose stools.

Maybe OK to stop...: Most upper respiratory infections are viral, and no antibiotic treats any virus infection. Your doctor knows this, but probably thinks a bacterial infection is possible. But it sounds like the antibiotic isn't working, and it's probably the cause of your intestineal symptoms, so probably should be stopped. But don't go by distant online advice; discuss with your doctor before stopping it. ...Read more

I have been having bad pain in my stomach&intestine area & belching a lot. I'm taking Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for uti. Is that what is causing this, what could it be?

Probiotics: Hi Baldwin, Your abdominal pain and flatulence could definitely be caused by the Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim). Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that causes changes in your micro biome (the diverse array of micro-organisms that inhabit your intestines). To minimize the impact of antibiotics on your micro biome, take probiotics to replace your beneficial bacteria when you are on taking antibiotics. ...Read more

Severe upper stomach pain like a vise. Bad after eating, bad on an empty stomach, I think I have a ulcer. Can I use DGL licorice will it stop the pain?

DGL licorice: Although an ulcer is one possible cause of your pain, there are many other potential causes also. DGL licorice would not cause your pain to resolve even if your pain is due to an ulcer. Your best bet is to see your doctor for a diagnosis of the cause of your pain. In the meantime, try omeprazole 10mg each morning. Do not take this for longer than two weeks without a diagnosis. Good luck. ...Read more
