Advice on taking Amoxicillin for tooth abscess while on levothyroxine

Hi, I usually take my levothyroxine at 7am. Today I've been prescribed Amoxicillin to take three times a day for an abscess under a root canal tooth. How long should I leave after my levo dose before I take this. Also could anyone advise a good pro biotic to also take?

I have to go back to have further root canal treatment/extraction in two weeks- any advice on what may be best please :( Thanks

SunsetLady Whenever I've had to take an antibiotic multiple times a day, I work out the timing of the antibiotics (it usually says space evenly) then find the time which is furthest away from any of them and take my Levo then. It might mean taking it at a completely different time than normal for the few days of the course of ABs but it won't hurt.

If you get up for the loo in the middle of the night that might be the best time, or bedtime, or early morning before you get up.

I currently take a maintenance antibiotic, one tablet three times a week. I currently take my Levo around 7am and take my AB afternoon or evening.
