Hi I have an ear infection and I have to take the antibiotic amoxicillin twice a day. Will it affect my birth control pills? If so how many days should I use back up. I just got on the birth control apri this month.
ADDITIONAL CONTRACEPTION RECOMMENDED: The effectiveness of estrogen-containing oral contraceptives may be impaired by concomitant treatment with antimicrobial agents. rae no you need to have your partner use condoms during sex while taking Amoxicillin and also finish the complete month to be extra safe. good luck
