yes, that shouldnt be a problem. Amoxicillin is an antibiotic, acetaminophen is an analgesic, chlorpheniramine maleate is an antihistamine and phenylepherine is a decongestant. These drugs are taken together commonly when one has an upper respiratory infection.

My only concern is that they meds you are asking about sounds like you have a cold amoxicillin does nothing for a cold.

no, the amoxicillin is for a toothache. and the other is for the flu.

Amoxicillin is not for a toothache. Amoxicillin is a penicillin antibiotic that fights bacteria.

Amoxicillin is used to treat many different types of infection caused by bacteria, such as tonsillitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, gonorrhea, and infections of the ear, nose, throat, skin, or urinary tract.

amoxicillin IS used for toothaches.. if a patient needs a route canal and experiences pain amoxicillin will prevent the tooth from getting becoming infected ultimately suppressing the pain.

This is a long time wait, but I figured I could post this for future viewers. Amoxicillin can be used for clearing bacteria. If you are using this prescribed with an infection, I can assume it would be quite useful for this. As the Drugs.com definition for Amoxicillin says, "Amoxicillin is used to treat many different types of infection caused by bacteria, such as tonsillitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, gonorrhea, and infections of the ear, nose, throat, skin, or urinary tract."

As long as your not allergic to an of those meds it's ok to take them together. Amoxicillin helps with infection in the teeth I was given it for that same reason at 5 months pregnant.
