Sounds ok: If a person has a good reason to take sulfamethoxazole, is not allergic to it, and is not having vomiting or diarrhea, the sulfamethoxazole should work just as well, whether or not Plan B is taken. Also, if she has a good reason to take Plan B, and is not having vomiting or diarrhea, the Plan B should work normally, regardless of her use of antibiotics. She should do a pregnancy test in 3 weeks.
