Calcium compounds should be taken 1 hour before or 2 hours after any other medication, since they can complex with the drugs and reduce or delay absorption. If you just take it at the times above, it shouldn't cause you any problems.

Is it true that if you are on antibiotics they kill the bacteria in your stomach, if so should you eat yogurt?

Yes

Intestine
Antibiotics kill bacteria, not in your stomach, but in your intestines. Yogurt helps with replenishing the good bacteria. Eat yogurt that has acidophilus probiotcs in it.

Florastor

The probiotic florastor, a yeast based probiotic containing a saccromyces species, has been shown to decrease the risk of recurrent c-diff and is a reasonable choice for prevention during antibiotic treatment, along with good hygeine practices

My wife is on antibiotics which have caused a lot of diarrhea. What can we do to reduce this symptom? Already taking lots of yogurt.

Probiotics

Diarrhea
Consider a probiotic that contains both lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidobacter. Consult with your physician for additional testing to rule out c difficile infection as a cause of diarrhea.

Do probiotics really fight off C diff? Looking at 3d round of antibiotics in 2 months. Also, is a pill form or edible (yogurt, drink) more effective?

Fecal transplant...

Stringio
may be helpful with refractory C.diff. Probiotics include: lactobacillus, acidophilus, bifidobacter, sachromyces boulardes, but are not "stand-alone" treatment for C.diff. Probiotics may provide (in some patients): less gas, regulated bowels, prevent & most help treat infections (like C.diff), improve digestion, decrease inflammation. Look into FloraStor, but definitely talk with your treating doc

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!

i have been suffering from acne since 6years and eating antibiotics for the same time is there any stopping age for it?

Scientific Rx

Pimples
Acne self-cures as you get older but the time is unpredictable. I was able to stop taking medication at age 50. Stop the antibiotics -- never use antibiotics alone for acne. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared you in two weeks, it's time to consider adding a second prescription Rx -- anything from spironolactone to isotretinoin -- not for the faint-hearted.
