Feb 4, 2014

I took ibilex 500 for a uti at 10.30pm and got diarrhea at 11pm, has the medicine been absorbed? If not should i take another dose? Or what should i do?? Thanks!

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Diarrhea rarely has a significant effect of the absorption of medications- it's only if you actually see pills in the stool that one needs to be concerned.

I would not recommend taking a second dose of medications after having diarrhea.

Hope that helps. BY
