Can I use oil of oregano in addition to augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) (i have a sinus infection and read about the benefits of this natural remedy). ?

Can you take oil of oregano and amoxicillin at the same time? I have a sinus infection and ear infection.
Take oil separately: I'm not sure if you mean directly with at the same time. Fish oil has essential omega 3 fatty acids not provided in a multivitamin but is best taken as separate times than a multivitamin, as the minerals in the vitamin might combine with the fish oil to make a soap, impairing absorption of both. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
