Which preparation: Hydroxycut comes as several different preparations, some of which were taken off the market for severe liver toxicity. Without knowing what is in the particular one you are taking, no way to determine interference with antibiotic. The other fact is that there is very little concrete evidence that you will reduce anything more than the thickness of your wallet. Eat sensibly and exercise.
