Yes, but u shouldn't: As a doc, I am anti-smoking so i won't say go ahead and smoke. But smoking is not likely to interfere with that antibiotic--branded as augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate). I hope you get better fast for reason you are taking the antibiotic, and that you consider quiting smoking. Good luck.

Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate): The combination of Amoxicillin with Clavulanic Acid extends the spectrum of activity that Amoxicillin alone has against different bacteria. Your doctor might choose Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) to treat certain types of infections.
