Blue and white capsule with no markings from Mexico

I found a blue and white empty capsule in my mom's room. We have caregivers from Mexico. No numbers nor markings on it. I'm afraid someone emptied it in my mom's food. Please help! ## Hello Carol, First thing is first, if you feel that someone has put any kind of medication in your mothers food you should report this to to her medical provider and monitor her behavior closely.

Can I take Amoxicillin and Alka-Seltzer Cold and Flu?

Can I take Alka-seltzer cold and flu and Amoxicillin together? I have a bad sinus infection and need relief from the pressure and headaches ## Alka-Seltzer Plus Severe Cold & Flu contains: - Acetaminophen - Chlorpheniramine - Dextromethorphan - Phenylephrine Is this the same medication you're asking about? They make a number of different formulations. If the active ingredients listed on the box are different form the ones above please let me know. Next, I used the drug interaction checker on WebMD against Amoxicillin and there were no interactions found. I would still recommend checking with your pharmacist just to make sure the cold medication will not reduce the efficacy of your antibiotics. I hope this helps and feel better!

Alaxan Fr during first trimester of pregnancy

I take some Alaxan FR and Amoxicillin when I am at my first weeks of pregnancy, is there any effect for my baby? Could someone help me what to do? ## Alaxan FR is reported to contain Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen [1]. Acetaminophen is generally considered safe to take during your entire pregnancy.
