I've been on amoxicillin for treating a skin condition for about two months. I started taking tri sprintec birth control a month ago. I stopped taking Amoxicillin 4 days (I think) before my period started and I took the week 4 sugar pill BC. I had unprotected sex today, Sunday of the next 28 day tray. Since I was worried in the after thought of getting pregnant I took a second dose from week 3. Am I protected? Should I take plan b?
When am I protected from getting pregnant after I've stopped taking Amoxicillin and Tri sprintec?

on second thought I might've stopped taking Amoxicillin about a week ago. I'd still like to know how long it takes for that to wear off
You can't alter your pill schedule. It does nothing, except screw up your schedule. You should use a condom for 7 days after you stop the antibiotic. I can't tell you whether or not to take plan B, but here are the facts about when you are safe.
You are basically starting over with this pack, so you needed the condom.
