Antibiotics (Tetracycline antibiotics) interacts with YOGURT
Yogurt contains calcium. The calcium in yogurt can attach to tetracyclines in the stomach. This decreases the amount of tetracyclines that can be absorbed. Taking calcium with tetracyclines might decrease the effectiveness of tetracyclines. To avoid this interaction, take yogurt two hours before or four hours after taking tetracyclines. Some tetracyclines include demeclocycline (Declomycin), minocycline (Minocin), and tetracycline (Achromycin).
Ciprofloxacin (Cipro) interacts with YOGURT
Ciprofloxacin (Cipro) is an antibiotic. Yogurt might decrease how much ciprofloxacin (Cipro) the body absorbs. Taking yogurt along with ciprofloxacin (Cipro) might decrease the effectiveness of ciprofloxacin (Cipro). To avoid this interaction, take yogurt at least one hour after ciprofloxacin (Cipro).
NILOTINIB (Tasigna) interacts with YOGURT
Yogurt might increase the absorption of nilotinib (Tasigna) by a small amount. But it does not seem to increase side effects of nilotinib.
