Hi!
There can be many causes of inability to gain weight or lose weight significantly. Either you do not eat well or there is increased metabolism as in hyperthyroid states, Diabetes ,HIV, cancer etc.The various causes are worms in stool, poor absorption as in irritable bowel syndromes and malabsorption syndromes etc.Serious but rare causes are AIDS, cancers especially colon cancers etc. Any antibiotic intake should not cause weight loss. It is suggested e consult your PCP for clinical examination .He may advise you further tests based on clinical examination findings. Take care and regards!
