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. If you have persistent diarrhea you should see a doctor to make sure you don't have something more serious (c. Difficile). ...Read more

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?

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?

Famotidine: Although famotidine can rarely cause diarrhea, the fact that you can take it on a regular basis without side effects make it more likely that today's episode is not due to the medication. 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?

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

I am constipated and probably need to take a laxative but am worried about side effects. Do laxatives give you diarrhea

Laxatives: This is a loaded question. Start by defining exactly what you mean by constipation, and keeping a journal of what happens daily.
Laxatives may or may not be appropriate and should be used regularly only under medical supervision. To address constipation on your own, first eat 3 regular meals per day, drink two liters of water per day, cut out caffeine and alcohol, and add fiber to each meal. ...Read more

I take 6, 000 g of vitamin c. Apart from occasional mild diarrhea, I have no other obvious side effects. Are there other negatives for me? I'm 75.

How long does it usually take for antibiotic side effects like nausea or diarrhea to start, and can pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) be used to treat them?

How long does it usually take for antibiotic side effects like nausea or diarrhea to start, and can pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) be used to treat them?

Antibiotics+diarrhea: If a medication causes nausea, that usually happens right away, within an hour of the first dose. Diarrhea can start after a longer period of time - from several hours to several days. The illness being treated can also be the cause of the diarrhea. Sometimes antibiotic-associated diarrhea requires that we stop or change the antibiotic. If fever or painful diarrhea, please talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Regardless, it's always best to report side effects to prescribing doc so that s/he can help you decide whether to stop/change ...Read more
