Top best answers to the question «Can i take antibiotics with milk»

The classic family of antibiotics that cannot be taken with milk are the tetracyclines, because the calcium in the milk binds the antibiotic and prevents gut absorption. For most antibiotics, food results in either a decrease in absorption or has no effect.

Less milk is better: If a liquid medicine for kids does not say something like "do not take with milk or dairy" on it, a parent can mix it with a little bit of milk, maybe...

Eg:- If you are taking tetracyclin(an antibiotic) with butter milk, it will form a complex with calcium present in butter milk and decrease absorption of each other and thus, decrease their effect… where as if you take digitalis with calcium, it could increase it’s effect…
