Yes, it can upon occasion cause diarrhea. Especially if you don't use it on a daily basis, which is the preferred method. But your body will normally balance itself back out pretty quickly. If this medication is new to you, you might want to give it a couple of weeks to allow your body to get used to it. If after that it continues to give you problems you should probably discuss changing it with your Dr. I hope this helps!
