    Anti biotics can cause loose stool or diarrhea, I experienced the same thing when I was on an antibiotic so that's normal. I'm  not a fan of them for that reason. Also if you're taking a lot of antibiotics, that can reduce their efficiency over time. 

    If you're having diarrhea then take some imodium or pepto bismal.  

    You can also look up the medication and see what side affects they can cause. If this is disrupting your life too much, go back to your doctor and see if they can give you some thing other then an antibiotic.

    Read the instructions. You might be taking them at the wrong time of day. You can take probiotics too. It is important to keep going for the full five or seven days,

    Yes, those are known possible side effects. I drink plenty of fluids to keep from dehydration and drink kefir because it is an excellent probiotic

    Yes.  Some of them really mess me up.  Clindamycin is the worst.  Tetracycline type drugs are easier on me.   If I have to go on antibiotics, I take probiotics to try to replenish my good bacteria.  It helps some.

    Some antibiotics can cause this, ask the doctor to put you on another brand.

    Pretty sure your doctor forgot to tell you to call him if there were antibiotic side-effects. He can prescribe different antibiotics, or something to counter the antibiotic effects.

    Yes it can happen, take them with food.

    Not uncommon for antibiotics to disturb normal bowel function by killing friendly bacteria as well. As long as the directions do not prohibit it, eat some yogurt.

    Read the instructions for use; most people never do......
