Yes: You don't say which antibiotic but I am unaware of any adverse interactions between vitamin c and any antibiotics. If you are on an antibiotic you have an infection and vit c generally helps our immune system fight infections. I advise 1-2000 mg 2-3x/day for most people with infections.

Too many vtiamin supplements are not good. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Vitamin C: I recommend people get their Vitamin C from foods- berries, citrus, etc. Oral vitamin C is very safe, so if someone wants to supplement it I won't try to talk them out of it.
