Recently i got treated for tonsil infection for which had to take azithral 500 mg antibiotic for 3 days.

After taking azithral i started having increased bowel movement and stool is mostly soft in bits and pieces.

Antibiotics can change the type and number of 'good bacteria' in the digestive tract while they're doing their job of getting rid of the infection. You may want to consider trying some probiotics - the good bacteria that should be in the GI tract. There are a number of good brands on the market that include Culturelle, PB8 and Digestive Advantage-IBS (not only for IBS) among others.
