: I have had stool samples taken-negative, blood work was fine also. Taking Lomotil 4 or 5 times a day, (for 3 weeks now), slows it a bit. Taking Belladonna/Phenobarb usually once a day for cramps, (makes me really depressed). Been taking Bactrim twice a day for 3 days, and Flagyl 4x a day for the same period, no effect, actually stool is looser even with the Lomotil. Help, can't work, get dizzy when on my feet too long. Got 7 more days of antibiotics before Doc wants to see me again. I am 53yr old male in usually good health

What is the bactrim prescribed for? Seems like that would almost tend to counter act the Flagyl which is used for people who test positive for C-diff or probable cases of C-Diff. I would call and ask to be seen sooner if you are getting dizzy and are to weak to work. You could have an electrolyte imbalance from all of the loose stools. If you are not under the care of a gastroenterologist I would also recommend that you ask your doctor to set up an appointment with one ASAP to find out what is going on.
