    If you have just finished 3 weeks of antibiotics then it's possible that the natural balance of good bacteria in your system has been disrupted. Whilst I don't know if that could be the only reason you have been to the loo more than usual it could be a contributing factor. Unless you have other symptoms causing you concern I would leave well alone and give it a few days to settle before taking more antibiotics. Perhaps a quick conversation with your GP will put your mind at rest if you are worried.

    Antibiotics always make me run to the loo and it takes a good week after finishing before my insides settle down and I get back into something closer to my normal rythym.  If you've still got the papers which came with the pills I suggest you read the section for side effects, to see if diarrhoea is one of the listed ones.

    I always get diarrhoea with antibiotics.

    If you are worried I would see your GP.

    Hope it improves. I take a probiotic daily to put the good bacteria back.

    Thought I had UTI pain so bad went to ER had CT scan,diverticulitis! Ugh. They wanted to give me Cipro, can't take because I had an Achilles Tendon Rupture caused by Cipro. So taking another antibiotic plus flagyl. Started anti last night. Saw PMD this morning. Liquid diet. Pain is still so bad hurts to walk. I had this once before in the 90's. Can't remember feeling this bad. Maybe because I'm older!!
