Jamil Carter is in the bathroom, again. Ever since he was hospitalized for a urinary tract infection (UTI) 6 months ago, Jamil has been plagued with fever, chills, and severe diarrhea. He has lost 15 pounds since his hospitalization. Jamil is 75 years old, is retired, and lives with his wife and adult son. He does not smoke and rarely drinks alcohol. While in the hospital, Jamil was treated with the antibiotics ceftriaxone and ciprofloxacin for the UTI. He developed diarrhea 3 days after being discharged from the hospital and has had it ever since. What could be causing Jamil’s diarrhea

Both of the antibiotics cause diarrhea, especially ciprofloxacin.
