I am taking Amox-Clav 875-125 MG and the guy I am seeing was just diagnosed with strep throat. Can I catch strep from him?

Strep transmission: Strep is very easily passed from one person to the next - especially if they might be involved in kissing, sharing drinks/cigarettes etc. Funny thing is, you're on the right treatment for Strep - so as long as you're on it, you're actually protected because any germs passed from him would be 'killed' because you're on targeted antibiotics for that. Would use common sense though so u both recover. ...Read more

Hello, I have been taking sulfamethoxazole for a bad tooth infection but it not doing job so I'm switching to Amox-clav 875-125. Do you think this ant?

Tooth infection: Tooth infections require definitive treatment by a dentist. Any antibiotic or combination of antibiotics will not resolve the issue. Who put you on the Sulfa drug? My guess is that you are self administering your medications which if true is useless. If under the care of a dentist- discuss with him/her. If not go to one! ...Read more
