Interactions between your selected drugs and food
penicillin ↔ food
Applies to: penicillin
You may experience reduced absorption of penicillin in the presence of food. The effectiveness of the antibiotic may be reduced. Penicillin should be administered one hour before or two hours after meals. This will make it easier for your body to absorb the medication. Penicillin V and amoxicillin are not affected by food and may be given without regard to meals.
I don't know that I'd take them at the same time. Bentyl slows the digestive tract and that could increase the absorption of the penicillin. This doesn't mean it would be dangerous, just change the amount you get.
