Can I take metoprolol and Augmentin in the same day?
At a glance
- There is no known interaction between Augmentin and metoprolol. They can safely be taken together.
Hi there and thank you for your question!
Depending on the form of metoprolol you've been prescribed (i.e. metoprolol tartrate or metoprolol succinate), you are likely taking it once or twice daily.
Augmentin is most often prescribed twice daily, and if it works best for you, as mentioned above, you can simply take your Augmentin and metoprolol at the same time with no ill effects.
Lastly, both drugs can be taken with or without food, but generally, taking both with food will be beneficial.
For metoprolol, the immediate-release tablets (metoprolol tartrate) are better absorbed when taken with food or immediately after food. For Augmentin, food helps to decrease stomach nausea and therefore may be better tolerated.
Thanks for using us and be sure to reach out with any additional questions you may have in the future!
