I am consuming 4 oz. of "Activia yogurt" per day to improve bowel movements. I am also taking 250 mg of azithromycin daily. Will the pro-biotic counteract the antibiotic?
Can I consume yogurt (a pro-biotic) while taking Azithromycin (an antibiotic)?

Yes, you can.
I always take probiotics when taking antibiotics.
Like all broad spectrum antibiotics, azithromycin does not discriminate between pathogenic bacteria and “friendly” bacteria. You must take your probiotic at least two hours before or after you take your antibiotic, you should gain the desired benefit from both.
