Certainly the body will try to rid itself of any germs or toxins which probably affected u for the last few days. Now that you're getting better I wouldn't worry.

I went off my nexium because of loose stools and took zantac for a couple of days. The zantac didn't work so I went back on the nexium it has been a few days and I'm still having stomach problems...how long can it take for the nexium to work?
Try tapering off: Try tapering off nexium (esomeprazole) by taking it every other day for about 2 weeks. You can overlap with Zantac daily as needed during this time frame. If the loose stools persists or is associated with weight loss this could indicate microscopic (lymphocytic colitis) related to chronic nexium (esomeprazole) use. This as well as other possible causes of the diarrhea should then be investigated by your physician. ...Read more
Iron tablets giving me bad stomach cramps and loose stools. Is this normal and when should it pass?
Common side effect:
What you are experiencing are common side effects of oral iron. You may try a different preparation. If you can not tolerate oral iron talk to your doctor about taking it intravenously. Intravenous treatment can be done in one sitting.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
