This is my standard antibiotic on my rescue pack, has been for the last couple of years. Well my grandson has recently been put on them for a sinus infection, I was asking how he was, he was telling me the chemist had told him he hadn’t to drink milk or even have it in his coffee…no dairy products at all while he was on them ???? I’d heard nothing of this so I read the leaflet and nothing was mentioned regards dairy products . Then out of the blue my sister in law phoned this morning to say she had seen on the internet that you were not to take any dairy products while taking these antibiotics ….bearing in mind she was not aware of the conversation I had with my grandson yesterday. ???
Can anyone tell me if they were aware of this, I would appreciate getting this clarified, I’m going to phone my chemist to enquire. 🤔
I have used doxycycline and never been told to avoid dairy products!! In fact I increase them when on it because I have yogurt probiotics to aid the good bacteria that is being destroyed by the antibiotic!!
Yes I agree I also went on probiotics but I shall wait till I’ve finished the course in future
