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.

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

I finished Amoxicillin/Clavulanate 875mg/125mg sunday morning and monday morning I took levonelle step one emergency pill. Does the pill work?

However, it is not know how significant that decrease is. I would suggest you check a pregnancy test in a couple weeks regardless.
