Is it a Myth or a Fact?

 

"Antibiotics that treat infections do not affect digestion..."

Indeed antibiotic related diarrhea is fairly common. The spectrum of diarrhea related to antibiotics is very diverse. Frequently it is mild and goes away on its own.. On occasions, it can be very severe and have bleeding associated with it. This occurs due to a toxin produced by a bacteria called Clostridium difficile and the entity is called C. difficile colitis or pseudomembranous colitis. Antibiotics targeted specifically at C. difficile are then required for treatment.
