Talk to your doctor: You should tell your doctor about all the medications/drugs/supplements you take. For now quit taking stuff that your doctor did not prescribe. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

What would be signs that amoxicillin was having an interaction with the effectiveness of Sprintec birth control?

What would be signs that amoxicillin was having an interaction with the effectiveness of Sprintec birth control?

Pregnancy: Although rare, antibiotics can interfere with birth control. You would not be aware of this until you miss a period. I recommend using a back up method of birth control, such as condoms, when on antibiotics. If your period does not come at the usual time, get tested. Good luck! ...Read more

Yes.: Talk to your doctor before using methotrexate together with amoxicillin. Medications like amoxicillin, especially when given at high dosages for infections, can sometimes increase the blood levels and effects of methotrexate. You may have increased side effects such as nausea, vomiting, mouth ulcers, and low blood cell counts. ...Read more

A child is on methotrexate 12.5mg once weekly for JRA. She was prescribed amoxicillin for a sinus infection. Is it okay for her to be taking these together? I saw that there is a potential for interaction between the two.

Yes but not a major: Yes there is an interaction but not at the doses we use for arthritis. the amoxicillin can increase the level of methotrexate. This is a problem with the high anti-cancer doses we use to treat malignancy. But you may want to hold the methotrexate until the sinus infection clears. ...Read more

Wanting to take Pygeum (herb for enlarged prostate) but am on Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for next few weeks. Any interaction I need to worry about?

Wanting to take Pygeum (herb for enlarged prostate) but am on Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for next few weeks. Any interaction I need to worry about?

Enlarged prostate?: Pygeum has been reported to help benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) which would be very unusual at age 24-years. Hope UR consulting a urologist. There do not seem to to be any reports of interaction with Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) Wonder in fact if you have bacterial prostatitis which would be reason for antibiotics. Did U have urine or prostatic fluid culture? No more than 10% of prostatitis cases are bacterial! ...Read more
