Can taking an antibiotic cause you colitis to flare up?
You can also avoid them in some situations since they tend to be over prescribed. Just make sure you have an infection you can't clear without antibiotics. I've been prescribed them for things that ended up clearing on their own including bacterial v, sinus/ear infections etc.
Like Quincy, I also did not flare when I took them, but was in a deep remission for several years and also took more probiotics. I did get more stomach discomfort and looser stools on them (lasted 1-2 weeks and then bounced back to normal), but did not flare.
