“Katie, it says here that it may cause diarrhea,” I gingerly broke the news to my daughter who is currently taking amoxicillin to clear up a rash.
“Diarrhea?! Then I’m not taking the medicine!” Katie retorted.
“Well, it’s just a possible side effect, but it likely won’t happen and you’ll be fine.”
Katie reluctantly took the pill and swallowed it.
Then she clutched her stomach.
“Oh no! Now I have diarrhea!”
Katie grinned slyly.
