Usually Yes: It seems the medications are treating 2 different things. If they were prescribed by the same doctor then he/she is aware and made the choice for specific reasons. If they were prescribed by 2 different doctors let your primary doctor know about it. He/she may be able to switch you to a single antibiotic to cover both conditions. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: There is no interaction between sulfa medications and buprenorphine. However, it is in your best interest to make sure that anyone prescribing to you knows all the medication your are on. Also, get all your medication from one pharmacy, or make sure that other pharmacies know what meds you are on. They all have computerized drug-interaction checkers now, and will generally flag any problem meds. ...Read more

Switching antibiotics from bactrim to Cipro (cipro (ciprofloxacin)floxacin). Bactrim stopped last night/taken for 5 days. Is it ok to start cipro (ciprofloxacin) today or are there any interactions?
It is ok: You didn't say what you were taking the antibiotics for- I am assuming urinary tract infection? Also, I am assuming a medical provider told you to switch and start cipro (ciprofloxacin). If so - there are no significant interactions (as long as you're not allergic). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm currently taking augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for sinus infection and bronchitis. Should i continue taking a probiotic or stop while on the antibiotics?

Im allergic to penicillin and erythromycine, can I take bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim)?
Yes but for what?: Yes. You can take Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) as it is a sulfa drug and different class of drug from penicillin and erythromycin. The real question is for what condition do you want to take? Because the causative organisms for specific diseases may be virus, bacteria, fungus or parasite and the Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is not a magic bullet for all. See your doctorwho would tailor the antibiotic according to organism & sensitivity. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: You should not take Cipro (ciprofloxacin) with dairy products alone (such as milk or yogurt) or with calcium-fortified juices (such as orange juice). However, you can take Cipro (ciprofloxacin) with meals that contain these food items. Calcium can bind to Cipro (ciprofloxacin) in the digestive tract, preventing it from being absorbed into the bloodstream. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
