Can i take amoxycilin clav 875-125mg with common cold medicine acetaminophen/dextromethorphan/phenylephrine to lessen the effects of throat infection ?
Antibiotics URI: No interactions between these meds. There is no evidence to support the use of antibiotics in the treatment of the common cold. Antibiotic treatment causes more harm than benefit.
