Brief Answer:
Probiotics.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, XXXXXXX
This is an usual side effect of the azithromycin. I suggest you to take any proton pump inhibitor like TAB. RABEKIND DSR before food when ever you have azithromycin. And a probiotic like SPOROLAC powder 1 packet mixed in a glass of water 3 times daily.

Any query do follow up.

TAke care.
