Scan I eat dairy products while taking Azithromycin?

The actual answer to ignore is the one claiming you should not consume dairy with azithromycin! It is not a fact based claim. The class of antibiotics that you should not consume dairy with are the tetracyclines. Azithromycin is a macrolide antibiotic. So the dairy restriction simply does not apply. Now that being said if you are consuming yogurt for its probiotic properties you should wait at least 2 hours before or after as azithromycin will just kill the active cultures if taken too close to it

I have not a single problem on many occasions while taking Azithromycin. I would encourage to take anything thing can bring down the inflammation.Try to limit this by avoiding sugar. Sinus infections are a nuisance avoid sleeping flat as well to let the fluids in your face drain properly. Warm face clothes over the eyes could also help. I hope you feel better.

I have recently read Azithromycin has milk sugars but contain no lactose. I assume that these Dairy products interact with Antibiotics which we are taking and prevents their absorption I assume "they" are talking about lactose products. So the answers by the gentleman are very much true.

Ignore previous answer. Do NOT take with dairy products. Dairy forms a complex undigestable molecule with Zithromax. Also, your body will continue releasing medication for up to 15 days after taking the last pill. For best results don't eat dairy during this time period as well.

The literature states that you can take it with or without food, and it does not specify, except dairy. So apparently its ok to have dairy food while on zithromax.
