Question by malibuE: Can i take rennie tablets whilst on a course of amoxicillin?
I have read that you are not supposed to take antacids when you are taking antibiotics. I have severe tonsilitis so am on amoxicillin but i also have extremely bad heartburn. My mum bought me some rennie tablets so i was wondering if it would stop the amoxicillin working if i took them as well? Or if not, is there anything i can use to treat my heartburn that won’t affect the antibiotics?
Answer by Doxycycline
The best person to call for this would be your pharmacist (called the chemist in the UK). As I recall some antibiotics (e.g. Cipro and doxycycline) should not be taken with antacids but other antibiotics are just fine with them. I don’t remember whether amoxicillin was OK or not… but your pharmacist/chemist will!
