I know my DS reacts like that to Erythromycin - we make sure he never gets prescribed it!

Yes, they can make you have that.

Can also make you be sick too.

I give up.. soon as dinner is done.. I'm going to bed!

Yep they can. If you get this sort of response then note down the name of the Ab and next time the doctor looks like prescribing you some ask for 'not that one, it gives me the runs'.

Yes. What are you on? Some are worse than others. It usually passes. If it doesn't, you probably need to check the info leaflet and ring your GP. But carry on taking them unless your GP tells you otherwise.

Eating live yoghurt can sometimes help (replaces some of the good bacteria in the gut that the ABs kill).

I'm on Trimethoprim to start with.

D.... has calmed down a bit..thank the lord.. thanks all.. and sugar.. i'll get some live yogurt.. gawd who'd think taking ab's would actually make you feel worse than you did before! shock..

( can you tell.. i am not used to this.)

It's quite common they make you feel quite bad, sadly. When it's over you might need to look into a live bacteria supplement if your tummy doesn't calm down on live yoghurt alone. But I can never remember which actually work - it's very few of them - so can't tell you which to buy.

Died In A Rolls Royce Having Over Eaten Again.
