Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
How many episodes of diarrhea are you having?
Since how long are you on doxycycline and metronidazole?
Please let me know.
At least 20 a day
I have been on the antibiotics a total of 12 days
You should go to the emergency because this many episodes as this can lead to dehydration.
You will most likely require intravenous fluids with this many episodes that you are having.
I have been drinking at least 1-2 litres of water a day
I understand but you may will still require to be worked up further. This diarrhea seems likely to be antibiotic related.
is it normal to want to go to the toilet so often
You may also require your antibiotics to be changed.
No that is not normal.
Should i stop my current medication
