how come when you are taking antibiotics they tell you to either to take it with food or after food or before food or whatever...im taking them at the moment and i am meant to take them right before food, how important is that?

Antibiotics are pretty strong. They can screw over the bacteria that naturally occur in your digestive system if you don't take them with something else.

Because they are stronger if you don't eat them with food.

Because they disrupt the stomach, so taking them without food can potentially make you vomit. It doesn't have to be much, a couple of slices of toast or something is more than sufficient.
