The problem arises when people have overlapping prescriptions for these two drugs because there can be confusion as to whether they should take one tablet or two tablets at once time.
They might also forget which type of medicine they’re taking and think that their other medication has been cancelled out due to the effects of the ibuprofen.
What are some side effects?
Side-effects vary depending on how sensitive your body is, but common ones include nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, stomach pain/cramping, headache.
These symptoms usually go away within a few days after stopping with either drug–if you notice any itchiness or rashes from amoxicillin then talk to your doctor.
