Prednisone Diarrhea Side Effects
What does it mean when you have bloody diarrhea? I think is a side effect from prednisone, what should I do?
See a doctor: A gastrointestinal bleed caused by steroid induced ulcers should not cause overt blood or bloody diarrhea unless the bleeding is major.

I was prescribed Adco-amoxyclav, Betamox 500mg and Prednisone 5. Can I finish one of these and then the other one once I'm done. I'm struggling with Diarrhea with all of them together.
Call your doctor: Both the Adco-amoxyclav and the Betamox contain amoxicillin. I am not sure why you are on both at the same time, unless there was a need to increase your dose of amoxicillin above the amount in the adco-amoxyclav. Call your prescriber to find out what you can do to alleviate the diarrhea. Taking them separately for a longer period of time will not likely help. ...Read more
