Bowels after antibiotics

I was on antibiotics 5 times in 6 months, root canal. While on them I had some mucus with bowel movements. Then things were sort of normal again then I have been having quick movements first thing in the morning and my intestines gurgle and make noise during the day off and on. Should I be concerned? I have been kind of worried about this so that could possibly be affecting me also. I never have diarrhea and I go 1 or 2 times a day. It is just loose and seems like a lot. I feel great otherwise. I am so nervous that it is something though.

Thank you for any advice.

Because of the use of the antibiotics, you may want to consider trying some probiotics to try to normalize the decent bacteria you should have in your GI tract. Antibiotics wipe out the good and the bad bacteria and can really skew your bowel habits. There are some very good brands on the market that include Culturelle, Digestive Advantage IBS and FloraQ among others. They can't hurt unless you're immunosuppressed or have pancreatitis, so it's worth a try.
