Possible UTI - on Amoxicillan - will this affect urine screening results?
Patient : I think I may have a UTI however I have been taking 1500mg of Amoxicillin for the past 2 days because I had a wisdom tooth removed. I would like to take an at home dipstick test but I would like to know if the fact that I have been on a high dosage of amoxicillin will produce a false negative on the urine screening test. Please advise..
