I Would like to know if Bactrim and Augmentin can be taken…

Customer Question
I Would like to...

I Would like to know if Bactrim and Augmentin can be taken at the same time. I have a UTI plus infected tooth. So can I take both antibiotics at the same time?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you noticed any swelling in the gums? When was your last visit to the dentist?

The truth is actually broken and yes there is swelling and swelling and pain in my cheek

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No I just want to know if it’s safe to take both antibiotics at the same time. Thank you

I understand your concern.
As per your description, you can safely take Bactrim and Augmentin together at the same time.

You should also take OTC Advil and Allegra.

Apply cool compresses or cool water gargles.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
