There is no interaction and they are safe to use together. Most cold and allergy preparations are safe to use with amoxicillin. If you are not sure I would encourage you to ask your pharmacist.  It is common to use over-the-counter remedies when using an antibiotic. Symptoms may need to be treated while the antibiotic begins to work. And, keep in mind it is usually best to finish the full course of antibiotic to ensure the infection is completely eliminated.

    I want to ask, what kind of medicine that I can use to wash all of my clothes, blanket etc in order to kill the mites that cause scabies immediately? Even I soak my clothes with soap for several minutes and dry them in the sun, I still hesitate that all the mites die. Please help me. 😔
