Ask prescribing Dr.: The prescribing doctor, such as the pediatrician or pediatric infectious disease specialist, can advise about dosing methods. In general, if a patient is allowed to or advised to take oral medication with milk, there is usually no difference between swallowing the medication and the milk separately compared to swallowing them mixed together. After all, they rapidly mix in the stomach.
