Can you mix azithromycin in to food

Dear customer, Thanks for your question. Basically azithromycin capsules should be taken when the stomach is empty, which means taking them one hour before any food, or waiting until two hours afterwards. However the tablets or liquid medicine can be taken either before or after food. Take care.

Dear customer, What difficulty are facing in taking the medication?
Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 1 year ago.
There are lots of people who have trouble swallowing pills, and hence asking your doctor for a liquid medicine is recommended. However you may also crush the tablet and take it with food or juice. But this is less preferable than the intake of liquid form. Take care.
