Amoxicillan and carbimazole

Hi all i have got a nasty uti at the moment and gp has given me antibiotics Amoxicillan, i did check about taking them with iron which he suggested 2 hours away from one another but not my carbimazole 2.5mgs which i take around 8.30am, would you leave antibiotic 2hr after carbi or just one hour? 🌟🌟

Rmichelle,

I'm surprised your GP didn't tell you to stop taking Carbimazole until the infection cleared.

No should i?

The carbimazole reduces your infection fighting ability but its slso possible your hypothyroid now as UTIs accompany hypothyroid more often than not

Just rang pharmacist he said it is ok to take with carbi as it is only a 7 day course and only 2.5mgs.
