I'm currently taking 500mcg of amoxicillin 3 times a day. I'm curious if this will decrease the effectiveness of Plan B. I've searched online but there are varied responses. Some say that there are no interactions since it contains no estrogen while others say that it may decrease the effectiveness of plan b.

I'd like to know what your take on this is.

As always, Thank you in advance.

From a quick Google search, it doesn't seem like there's an interaction between amoxicillin and Plan B, but the very best person to talk to would be a pharmacist. They would know for sure whether there is, so my advise would be to give them a call.
