If I am highly allergic to ibuprofen is it safe

Patient

Q: If I am highly allergic to ibuprofen is it safe to take amoxicillin

Doctor

A:   Hi.
This is a very good question.

Since the drug group of both the medicines are different, the chances of you getting reaction to Amoxicillin is nil.
But remember the dictum: Anything under the sun including the sun can cause reactions, hence take the medicine and be on the toes to report to the Doctor if a problem develops, otherwise continue.

Hope this helps you.
