Can these two antibiotics be taken together doxycycline and augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate)?
Yes, but: Did your physician prescribe both? Sometimes we are on a medication routinely (ie- Doxycycline for acne) and a different antibiotic becomes necessary for another reason.

Probably: For simple antibiotic related diarrhea it would be ok to take Imodium (loperamide) for a brief period only.

I know it's not safe to take Excedrin while pregnant but everyone tells me diff reasons why .. What is the exact reason(s) why it's bad for baby!?
Excedrin: Excedrin Migraine, which is the same as regular Excedrin, contains three ingredients. One is Tylenol (acetaminophen), which is safe to take during pregnancy. The second is aspirin, which is not recommended during pregnancy. The third is caffeine, and Excedrin has about the same caffeine as a cup of coffee can have at its weakest. Aspirin interferes with your blood's clotting action. As a result, taking aspirin during pregnancy — especially after 32 weeks — can contribute to maternal and fetal bleeding. Aspirin and ibuprofen can also cause the premature closure of a vessel in a baby's heart, which can lead to high blood pressure in the baby's lungs (pulmonary hypertension), and prolong labor. ...Read more
Side effects: Any medication has side effects. Excedrin is a combination of three different medications. Each of them can cause side effects of their own, especially if taken often and in high doses. If you find yourself taking excedrin often, please consult with your doctor. You may benefit from different kind of migraine treatment. ...Read more
Yes: Taking Aspirin (250 mg in each excedrin extra strength) everyday can cause stomach irritation and lead to a feeling of bloating and indigestion. The tylenol (acetaminophen) probably would not cause bloating unless you got to the point if liver injury. I would avoid taking it as an everyday pain medication and speak to you physician regarding a long term alternative. ...Read more
Maybe: It might help and will not cause any issues to try. It is just over the counter medications that benefit some people with migraines and is seen as an abortive medication. If it does not, then you will have to consider prescription medications, such as triptans or ergots that can be more effective for abortive therapy. Excedrin migraine does work very well for some people, and others it does not. ...Read more
Yes: Yes, it's safe to take an excedrin once in a while for migrane/ tension headache. But if you have frequent headaches and have to take it regularly, get checked by your doctor first. Also, chronic use of excedrin is also not good as you may develop tolerance or a rebound headache. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not the PM version.: Excedrin PM contains diphenhydramine, AKA Benadryl, which can make you sleepy. Xanax (alprazolam) also can make you sleepy, so I would avoid that combination. The other Excedrin formulations, like Excedrin Migraine or Excedrin Extra Strength should be OK. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Yes: Realize you are taking half a Tylenol (acetaminophen) and a bunch of caffeine though. (check the ingredients). Be mindful of the fact that many people develop chronic daily headaches because of excessive use of Excedrin. They get addicted to the caffeine then get a headache when it wears off. At least a bottle of Excedrin has lasted at least 2 months in your case. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
