Can antibiotics cause loss of appetite

Common Questions and Answers about Can antibiotics cause loss of appetite


Avatar n tn Hyperthyroidism should be considered as well (ususally with increased appatite). Some type of infection is another common cause of weight loss with low appetite. It would be more likely if you had fever. I guess you don't have DM, right? Some of your synptoms suggested DM (weight loss and delayed wound healing) but appatite should be increased. Wish you solve all problems and get well soon.
Avatar n tn He was a very healthy puppy when we got him and had the appetite of any puppy his age. But from the past couple of years he seems to detest food.

Avatar m tn B is not susceptible to the same treatment, so when B has a flare, you feel worse like before, but it's not related to A, which is getting the stuffing beat out of it by the meds. If you're 'off your feed' (poor appetite), as can happen, it could cause your immune system to not put up as good a fight as it had been. Treatment is ups and downs, so don't despair!

Avatar m tn Antibiotics can cause diarrhea in and of themselves as a side effect. Antibiotics can also disrupt the normal intestinal flora and cause you to allow a bacteria called Clostridium difficile to take over. You need to get cultured for this. It s a stool (fecal) culture. See your doctor (not the nurse) and ask to have this done. If it is positive they will actually have to treat you with another bacteria to get rid of it plus you will need to take probiotics.
Avatar f tn My dog Koke has severe hair loss, he was given a urine test and blood test, and he was given antibiotics. He still has hair loss and am scared to take him out on sunny days because of sun burn. Is it old age? He also has arthritis, but I give him doggy asprin. Thank you.
Avatar n tn There are two ways that antibiotics potentially can reduce the action of birth control pills. Birth control pills contain estrogens. Some antibiotics, e.g., rifampin, griseofulvin, cause the enzymes in the liver to increase the break-down of estrogens and thereby can decrease the levels of estrogens in the body and the effectiveness of the pills. This can result in unwanted pregnancy.

Avatar f tn ) The dr does mention ear infection or polyps in the ears can be the cause, as well. Have you tried a google search of this issue? Since kitty is sleeping with her ears flattened, clearly, she's telling you she feels odd, so maybe a round of antibiotics wouldn't hurt. Has your vet checked her ears for infection?

Avatar f tn even the best of canned diets contain these ingredients and they can cause problems with some cats. Any cat can develop food intolerances,sensitivities or allergies. eg. chicken and turkey allergies are quite common. this does NOT necessarily mean they have IBD though it can come to that if the issue is not addressed as white blood cells(eosinophils, lymphocytes or macrophage) invade the lining of the stomach and intestine.
