Can You Take Amoxicillin On An Empty Stomach
Either: Amoxicillin is well absorbed on an empty or full stomach.
I am debating wether to give my 63 year old mother amoxicillin or ampicillin. She is in bed now, and does not have empty stomach. She has slight fever?
No difference: Ampicillin and amoxicillin are virtually identical; either drug is equally effective, but amp is taken more frequenlty and diarrhea is a more common side effect. However, nobody should take antibiotics without professional advice. If she has a bacterial infection, amp or amox isn't necessarily a good choice; best antibiotic depends on the specific illness and the particular bacteria causing it.See 1 more doctor answer

That's fine: The form you have may be taken without respect to meals. That is to say, you may take it before, during, or after meals *or* on an empty stomach and, thankfully, don't have to worry about it in the slightest. Sleep well! Www. Healthtap. Com/charlesturck

Consult prescriber: If not already tried then try taking Amoxicillin with food to reduce stomach irritation.

Just had big dental surgery and finished 7 days of amoxicillin. May it be wise to take probiotics to increase good bacteria for an unsettled stomach?
Yes to Probiotics: "pro"-biotics put good organisms into your gut (unlike "anti"-biotics which kill bacteria) & include: lactobacillus, acidophilus, bifidobacter, sachromyces boulardes, to name a few. Most are available over-the-counter & need to be taken daily to maintain the probiotic organism population. Benefits include: less gas, regulated bowels, prevent infections, improve digestion, decrease inflammation.
I am having severe pain below abdomen after my menstruation and I have a history of UTI. Can I take clindamycin and amoxicillin together?
UTI? STD? PID?: You can take these together if both prescribed by a doctor who knows you're taking both. Self treatment with antibiotics in this situation could be dangerous. The combination of UTI symptoms plus abdominal pain suggest infections like STDs, including fallopian tube infection (pelvic inflammatory disease, PID). Whatever is going on, it could be serious. See a doctor if you haven't done so.

Probiotics may help in this case.
