Quin, which antibiotics? I would honestly love diarrhea at this point lol.
Any of the fast-acting antibiotics. Amoxicillin, clarithromycin, minocycline, rifampin, all caused diarrhea. Valproate didn't, but valproate has a unique mechanism of action that takes several weeks to kill the bacteria. Intestinal bacteria refresh themselves much faster than that, and so aren't affected.
Just want to be clear because you mentioned Valproate with the abx -
Valproate is not an antibiotic - but an anti-seizure med that is used for epilepsy and bipolar disorder.
