I'm experiencing black stools and dizziness for 2 days...on

Customer Question

I'm experiencing black stools and dizziness for 2 days...on meds for a week to 10 days for both sinus infection (fexofenadine, flutacasone) and Bells Palsy (prednisone, erythromycin ointment).
Are the drugs interacting badly, or is something else the problem?
Thanks.

Hello. You need to go to the ER. Black stools are a sign of gastrointestinal bleeding. The blood is digested and turns black. And the fact you are having dizziness suggests that you've lost enough blood to make yourself symptomatic (dizziness). Please go to the ER. This is not a situation to take lightly.
