    Hi Tom. the best way to take them in my opinion is to have a couple of mouthful of food , take the antibiotics, and then finish eating. if it isn't close to a meal time I just have 2 plain biscuits instead. It's like a sandwich with the antibiotic as the filling.it has always worked for me. stops nausea and upset stomach. that is unless you're told to take them on an empty stomach.

    Best wishes.

    You could benefit from using probiotics to keep your gut flora balanced and that may be enough to stop the problem Tom. Just natural yogurt contains many many good bacteria.
