Asked in Drinks and Beverages, Soybeans and Tofu
Can you take antibiotics with soy milk?
No, you cannot take any antibiotics with soy milk. Calcium has been shown to block/interfere with the absorption of antibiotics. Do not ingest any food products containing calcium unless it is 4-6 hours before taking your antibiotic. But, if you can take your antibiotics with milk (e.g. penicillin, bactrim, etc..) you can take it with soy milk. Some antibiotics couldn't be taken with calcium, like quinolones (cipro, levaquin, avelox, ..) and you should avoid soy milk 2-3 hours apart in this situation.

Why are antibiotics in animal food bad?
Antibiotics in animal food is bad because the dseases and bacteria get used to the antibiotics in the feed and the evolve and learn how to beat it and therefore the antibiotics in animals feed has no longer an affect on the bacteria. You should only use antibiotics when completely necessary they are not to be used to prevent, only to cure.
Asked in Antibiotics
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.
Asked in Medication and Drugs, Antibiotics, Amoxicillin
What should I eat while taking Amoxicillin?
The most important thing is probably that you do eat at least a little something when you take this medication as it will make it less likely to irritate your stomach if taken with food. Avoid washing it down with carbonated drinks. Some people eat active culture yogurt once or twice daily to avoid another side effect of antibiotics-yeast infection.

Lovenox is an injected medication given to prevent blood clots. It does not have any food interactions although you probably should avoid other medications that affect clotting such as aspirin and non-Tylenol pain relievers while taking it. You may be confusing it with warfarin (Coumadin), which has many drug and dietary 8interactions.

what are some of the food diabetic people should avoid?
It's not exactly what you should avoid, it's what you should eat. Diabetes is about taking care of your sugar intake and there are tons of websites out there to help with what you should eat. If a meal has tons of sugar, don't eat it. Here is a link to a website that can help you find food that a diabetic person could eat: http://www.diabetes.org/food-and-fitness/food/planning-meals/diabetes-meal-plans-and-a-healthy-diet.html
