Is it OK to take Penicillin with Escitalopram ?
Hiya I have recently been diagnosed with tonsillitis and have been prescribed with phenoxymethylpenicillin to take 4 times a day. I am also taking a 5mg dose of Cipralex ( Escitalopram ) for anxiety each night. Is it safe to be taking both these medications together?
I have tonsillitis and am on phenoxymethylpenicillin when will it kick in?
Hi and welcome to HCM.
Several days are necessary till antibiotics starts to work and full recovery is expected in 7-10 days so just be patient. If this is antibiotic resistant bacteria type then you may need to swtich antibiotics. Wish you good health.
