Does amoxicillin and clavulanate affect a drug test for thc?

Does amoxicillin and clavulanate affect a drug test for thc?

It should not: Even if one of these produces an interference by one method, thc assays must be confirmed by another test using a different chemical principle if they are to have any consequences to the person. This isn't the place to talk about the wisdom of the marijuana laws or testing which may have adverse consequences. Good luck and I hope things work out for you.

Is it safe to drink alcohol (one or two beers) while on amoxicillin and clavulanate capsules?

Is it safe to drink alcohol (one or two beers) while on amoxicillin and clavulanate capsules?

No guarantees: There's no major interaction with alcohol. That being said, when sick (the reason I'm assuming you are taking amox/clav) alcohol can delay recovery as well as interfere with productive rest/sleep. Amox/clav is broken down in part by the liver as is alcohol, so there is certainly potential for harm there especially with excess. I would avoid alcohol until feeling well and off antibiotics.

Can I still take pill form amoxicillin and clavulanate that expired 9/15 for swollen lymph nodes?

Can I still take pill form amoxicillin and clavulanate that expired 9/15 for swollen lymph nodes?

Not such a good idea: Given that they expired over 1 1/2 years ago, I would not take them as they are partly organic molecules which can start disintegrating after their expiry date.

Just started amoxicillin and clavulanate 875 & oxybutynin now one hour later c/o dizziness & muscle weakness. Should I stop taking?

Call your doctor: This site is not for specific advice for either diagnosis or treatment of a person's conditions. Your doctor knows you best and can advise. Oxybutinin has multiple complications and its limited usage suggests that you can safely stop it until you chat with your pcp. Clumsiness, confusion, convulsions, dizziness drowsiness, fainting, changes in heart rate and rhythm and fever may all occur.

I'm on my last day of Amoxicillin and Clavulanate, but I've had a left temple headache for 3 days now. My neck, jaw and ears hurt.

Unrelated: I suspect that your headache is unrelated to any infection. If you grind your teeth a lot, check with your dentist regarding a potential TMJ issue or your family doctor.

Can I mix amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium in chocolate milk?

Can I mix amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium in chocolate milk?

Yes, but drink it all: You can mix the two together, but then you have to be sure you or your child drinks every last little bit of the combination to get all of the medicine. The medicine you ask about, augmentin, (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is not very palatable, especially the generic. Yu can also ask many pharmacists to flavor the medication if you or child can't stand the taste, or chase it with something like m&m's to make it taste better.
