So I understand that yogurt is probiotic and antibiotics are, well, antibiotic. And that we eat yogurt while on antibiotics to avoid the yeast that grows in the absence of bacteria.... My potentially really stupid question is: is it bad to take an antibiotic and eat yogurt at the same time? It never occurred to me until my 16 month old was feeding herself a yogurt and I arrived with the syringe of her antibiotic (for ear infection), which she sucked down with yogurt still in her mouth. And then I thought, hmm... will this yogurt somehow make the antibiotic less effective? Like use up all its powers on the cultures that are in the yogurt or something?
