I'm having dental problems after a root canal.At first I was given metronidazole and this didn't react badly to my IBS D but didn't clear up my dental infection so I have been given Erythromycin but only took 2 tablets and have had a really bad reaction to it.I noticed it can cause D and stomach upset so this is what must have happened.Anybody know the best antibiotics for dental infection with IBS D?

Erythromycin is usually pretty hard on the GI tract for healty people but which ones any given person tolerates varies a lot. I'd call the dentist and see if they will switch you to something else.I know there are some derivatives of it that usually are easier on people (like a Z-pack) so they might switch to that.
