No drug interactions: There are no known drug interactions between dilaudid and clarithromycin - so yes, it is safe to take your dilaudid as prescribed.

Morning after pill: Although antibiotics can reduce the efficacy of birth control pills, you didn't mention if you're on the pill. Unprotected sex can lead to pregnancy. If it has been less than five days, you can take Ella (ulipristal acetate) (rx morning after pill) to reduce your chances of conceiving. And be sure to take a pregnancy test two weeks from your last sex. Unfortunately, Doxycycline is associated with some birth defects. ...Read more
