In brief: Yes unless....

Yes unless the blood thinner is coumadin (warfarin).
All antibiotics can interact with Coumadin (warfarin) to raise its effect, so an earlier blood test is needed.

In brief: Yes

Yes, in general penicillen has no negative interactions.
But make sure the prescribing physician has a complete list of all your medications, supplements, and over the counter medications.
