do antibiotics cause loose stools?

i am taking antibiotics for h pylori. 2 days i took the antibiotics and the only problem i had was constipation. but now i keep having loose yellowish stools throughout the day .even if i don't eat much i still have a lot of loose stools that come out. sometimes there is so much it looks like i've eaten a whole meal,but i've only eaten a fruit or apple sauce and a lot still comes out. is this normal with antibiotics or do i have something more serious now?

It is possible that it is the antibiotic. They do have a tendency to do that to some people. Try eating yogurt with live and active cultures and/or talk to your pharmacist about a probiotic.

Hope this helps and feel better!!

I had the same problem with Antibiotic treatment for H.Pylori.
It will pass, take Probiotics when you finish your treatment.
