Antibiotic drugs interacts with FERMENTED MILK
Antibiotics eradicate many different types of bacteria. Fermented milk products contain some types of bacteria. Taking antibiotics with fermented milk might eradicate the bacteria in fermented milk. This might decrease how well the fermented milk product works. To avoid this, antibiotics and fermented milk should be taken at least 2 hours apart.
