Jul 22, 2014 I took a course of antibiotics over the winter/spring for a bad respiratory infection. While my infection cleared up, the antibiotics wrecked my ability to take a normal dump. I couldn't even pass gas without the fear of shitting my self.... no joke. I finally ended up getting on probiotics along with Aloe vera juice, psyllium and apple cider vinegar. It took about 2 weeks for things to get normal. I'd recommend probiotics especially after a course of antibiotics.
