After a dose of antibiotics, my stools have stopped floating. What gives?

My stools have mostly floated for as long as I remember. I've finished a course of antibiotics for an ear infection and now they don't float. The antibiotics gave me some GI symptoms, including nausea, loose stools and stomach pains. What could the cause of this be?

Floating stools are usually caused by gas. Gas in the bowel is mostly caused by bacteria. Maybe the balance of your bacteria has been disrupted by the antibiotics and so less gas is being produced. Just guessing...
