Does yogurt weaken the effectiveness of antibiotics?

Some antibiotics should be taken on an empty stomach to be effective (a certain time before food) Others should be taken with or after food. Your doctor or chemist will advise you how to take your prescribed antibiotic or you can look at the instructions on the leaflet that comes in the box with the antibiotics and you should follow this advice. Treat yogurt as just another food when following these instructions, there is nothing special about yogurt in this regard. However, sometimes it helps to eat live yogurt as part of your food while taking antibiotics and afterwards because the antibiotics can kill off friendly bacteria that normally live in your intestines and some people believe that the bacteria that cause milk to turn into yogurt can help to repopulate your intestinal bacterial flora.

What is the role of antibiotics in bacteria?

Antibiotics work in one of two ways: A bactericidal antibiotic kills the bacteria. Penicillin is a bactericidal. A bactericidal usually either interferes with the formation of the bacterium's cell wall or its cell contents. A bacteriostatic stops bacteria from multiplying. The problem with antibiotics however is that it does not identify bacteria but rather kills all of it but some bacteria is good and is necessary for you to live. This is why you begin to feel fatigued after about a week of taking them. It is suggested that you take antibiotics at the same time every day and to combat the affects eat yogurt at least two hours prior as yogurt has good bacteria. If you have to eat your yogurt at the same time or within the two hour period it is suggested that you eat non dairy soy yogurt.
