Can tylenol (acetaminophen) and flu antibiotics cause stomach upset and diarrhea? I am having these medicines for flu.
DETAILS MATTER!!!!!: "Flu antibiotics"?????? When you submit this again with the exact names of all your meds then an answer is possible. "Stomach upset" is vague. Nausea, vomiting, pain, burning??? "Flu" is too vague. Antibiotics vary widely but all are likely to cause nausea, diarrhea, etc. Antibiotics should not be used for routine viral infections. Resubmit this question with details. ...Read more
None: To be honest with you - none of the listed will cure it faster. It depends on your immune system and the severity of the flu. Both medications and home remedies only give you symptomatic relief. Tamiflu (oseltamivir) has been shown to shorten the flu for about 24 hours, but i've not been impressed with this medication and it is only effective if taken withing the first 24 hours since the onset. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probable infection.: This could be a gastroenteritis, probably viral, but could also be due to eating bad food or other reasons. Initially, the most important thing is to not become dehydrated. I would not eat solid food, but I would try to drink as many liquids as you're able to tolerate. If you feel that you're getting dehydrated, or if your fever persists more than 24 to 36 hours, then you should see your doctor. ...Read more
Sneezing, sinus congestion, chills, sweats, diarrhea, nausea. Vomiting every 1-2 hours. I got my flu shot this year.
Explanation : These all symptoms most likely related to other viral infection, not flu. To help yourself you need to drink fluids by small amount but very often to prevent dehydration, first of all. Diet with a lot of rice, apple sauce, toast, banana are helpful. Advil or Motrin may help with chills. And Day/nyouil is helpful for sinus congestion. Be well soon. ...Read more

Loperamide: Loperamide is an opioid-receptor agonist in the myenteric plexus of the large intestine; by itself it does not affect the central nervous system. It will alleviate diarrhea in many cases but must be used with caution if one suspects true colitis with salmonella, shigella, e. Coli or clostridium difficile since it may precipitate toxic megacolon. ...Read more
Gastroenteritis: Generally may be due to one of several viral infections and this should clear within a day or so. The fever is a little higher than usual, and if this does not clear rapidly you need to see a doctor, since there are bacterial and parasitic causes which will require therapy. Stay well hydrated. If you cannot keep anything down see your family doctor asap. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
5 days ago, began with diarrhea and lots of gas pain/pressure, low-grade fever, no vomiting. Food poisoning, virus, or bacterial? Thx.
Diarrhea: Certainly all 3 are possibilities. Have you been on any antibiotics in the last 6 weeks? If so having your stool tested for C. difficile would be prudent. Recent travel especially to 3rd world countries? Stool sample can be collected and tested these days for many causes including the 3 you mentioned. Otherwise, increase fluids such as sport drinks and stick with a simple diet until normal ...Read more

No: During episodes of diarrhea & vomiting, a body rapidly loses vital minerals and nutrients, which can quickly lead to dehydration. Using pedialyte at the first signs of diarrhea and vomiting can help reduce the risk of dehydration.Pedialyte is an electrolyte replacement beverage and not directly a cure for vomiting. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
