We understand the concerns that you feel. Taking drugs should not be given together or after consuming milk. Calcium in milk will bind to the structure of the drug which will cause absorption of the drug in the body to be disrupted, so its effectiveness tends to decrease.
There are various recommended ways to use the drug for consumption before and after eating with the recommended interval of 30-45 minutes. Food can help the absorption of drugs and vice versa can also inhibit the performance of drugs. Therefore, the best step is to follow the drug use guidelines according to the directions from the drug brochure, pharmacists and doctors who prescribe these drugs.
So related to your question, formula milk should not be consumed before or after taking the drug. The type of food consumed should also be solid food consumed as usual. A good liquid for consuming medicine is water, which is neutral to the substances contained in the drug. Avoid the consumption of milk, tea, coffee or syrup which is consumed together with medicine. This has the potential to reduce the effectiveness of drugs in the body.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
