Usually ok: Generally, the two constipation medications and azithromycin should be ok taken separately or taken together. If worried about stomach symptoms, one can take them separately, which is easy to do as azithromycin is a once-a-day drug. That said, some people get gurgly tummies and loose stools on azithromycin... and won't need laxatives on azithromycin days. Time will tell.
