In brief: Laxatives and meds

Laxatives and anti-fungals should not interact with each other, however taking laxatives with any medication can prevent some of the medications from being absorbed.
Speaking with your physician about the combo should let you know if it is okay. To help, take the anti-fungal medication at least an hour before the laxatives.
