Brief Answer:
no known interactions

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Oregano is thought to sometimes interact with medications for diabetes in some persons and also with medication for clotting, these do not occur for everyone.

There are no known interactions with antibiotics (such as the amoxicillin) or ibuprofen.

They can be used safely together

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
