Can I still take my food supplements like vit. C, E atc. while under medication? I'm taking co-amoxiclav augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) now coz I have strep throat.

In brief: Should be ok

Taken supplements can be taken with antibiotics.
Be cautious with Vit E as it can occasionally lead to a thinning of the blood. Always inform your MD what supplements you are taking before starting any medications. A balanced diet often makes supplements unnecessary. http://www.drugs.com/drug-interactions/multivitamin,vitamins.html
