It's probably the antibiotics that are wreaking havoc on your bowels, tbh, not the painkillers. Because they kill the good bacteria in your guts as well as anything dangerous and therefore mess with your digestive functions. Take some probiotic supplements and it should help, or at least eat some yogurt.

And yeah, don't trust farts while on antibiotics lmao.

Yeah naproxen if anything gives me slight constipation (and more sensitivity to acid reflux/heart burn related issues). But if it's causing OP too much trouble they should consider an alternative. It's painkillers supposed to make you feel better after all, not worse

Antibiotics of almost any kind on the other hand, are sure to give me diarrhea.

Yup exactly, painkillers cause constipation more often than anything. But antibiotics are NOT nice on the stomach and bowels, I find the severity really varies with the type for me personally. And I also feel like all of those kind of medication side effect related things are getting worse with age lol.
