it depends on the antibiotic you are taking for example azithromycin is taken before food. in most cases, antibiotics are prescribed to be taken after meal because if taken before meal they will cause side effects like cramping, diarrhea, constipation, nausea, vomiting, and others.

Antibiotics can kill good bacteria in your gut along with the bad bacteria causing your illness, meaning you can experience diarrhea as a side effect. Ask your doctor about medications you can take, such as probiotics or an anti-diarrheal. You can also feel better by eating a bland diet, avoiding dairy, and staying hydrated.
