A child is on methotrexate 12.5mg once weekly for JRA. She was prescribed amoxicillin for a sinus infection. Is it okay for her to be taking these together? I saw that there is a potential for interaction between the two.

Call your doctor: Talk to your doctor. This may be a resistant or unusual type of infection. This may also be a part of your child's disease or an allergy rather than an infection.

What would be signs that amoxicillin was having an interaction with the effectiveness of Sprintec birth control?
Pregnancy: Although rare, antibiotics can interfere with birth control. You would not be aware of this until you miss a period.
