Azithromycin does that to some people, unfortunately. It should still work though.

Yes it is just a side effect of the anti biotics which is often seen as a sign that they are indeed working.

Around 2 to 3 years and the runs will go away, don’t worry!

Any day now, patients are normally issued with 7 days of antibiotics and it should normally have cleared up by the end of the course, if it hasn't give it an extra 3 days and if you still have an issue then return to the clinic.
