Clarithromycin can be taken with food and/or you can eat before taking the medication. It is a macrolide antibiotic and can be harsh on the stomach, some people find the need to eat before taking it. It should be taken with a full glass of water.

Should you eat with Valium?

You can eat prior to taking valium and be safe... but what I think you really mean is will the high be less intense if you eat before taking it. That is a logical yes, any drug will be less effective if you eat before taking it as it gets mixed in along with the food taking longer to digest and longer to absorb; lessening the dose at any given time. Eating after taking valium and getting the effect will not lessen its effect though, so if you want to eat, take the valium first, wait for it to kick in, and then eat.
