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.

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Can I take amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium with Mucinex (guaifenesin) dm?

Can I take amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium with Mucinex (guaifenesin) dm?

Absolutely: The two drugs are completely different and should not cross react. Amoxicillin is an antibiotic and hopefully destroys bacteria. (it will not help if you have a viral infection). Mucinex (guaifenesin) thins secretions and it is very helpful in that it tends to liquify mucus and allows you to handle the thickened mucus if you have a dry cough. Only caveat is are you sure you have a bacterial infection? ...Read more

Can amoxicillin and Clavulanate potassium mixed with ibuprofen make you fail for THC?

Can amoxicillin and Clavulanate potassium mixed with ibuprofen make you fail for THC?

NO!!!!!!!!!: Not a chance in the world. For laboratory-confirmed tests, false negatives (the THC is in your system but the level is below the cut-off value) are common but false positives aren't. Sometimes people get surprised by a (+) test b/c they don't realize how long THC and its metabolites continue to be released in the urine. A regular +/- heavy user may test (+) a month after last use. Dr. Anne ...Read more

3-year old was on amoxicillin and clavulanate after a sore throat. She developed hives & swollen joints after10 days of antibiotics. What could it be?

This is most likely: An allergic reaction to the Augmentin (amox/clavulanate) that he was on. This is not uncommon and often occurs at the end of the treatment, or even once it's finished. You should also think about any other new exposures as possible causes. Viral illnesses can also cause this. You should definitely have his doctor check him and treat if indicated (sometimes antihistamine or steroid is used). ...Read more
