There: There should be no problem taking either of these while also eating yogurt. They should work well and be absorbed well. Some antibiotics are not well absorbed if you take lots of calcium pills at the very same time you take the antibiotics. Keep in mind that although yogurt has calcium in it it is not calcium pills. Take care.

Try not to miss any more pills. And if you are worried eat your yogurt at other times than when you take the pills. It should still be helpful! ...Read more
