Can you take paracetamol (acetaminophen) with antibiotics?

Official Answer by Drugs.com 7 Sep 2016

The best way to determine if you can take any two medications together is to have a drug interaction screen performed by a healthcare provider.

For example, antibiotics that may affect your liver could interact with paracetamol (acetaminophen), which can also be toxic to the liver in excessive doses or when combined with alcohol.

There are literally hundreds of antibiotics used to treat infections, so once you receive your prescription, ask your doctor or pharmacist if you can also take paracetamol (acetaminophen) at the same time that you take the antibiotic.

Usually this is not a problem, but you should always check.
