A.

Certain classes of antibiotics are safe. And when you go visit your doctor, they are fully aware of what classes you can be on. If you have any questions though when you come and drop off your prescription, make sure you talk to the pharmacist.

Will be able to double check that information for you if the doctor may have prescribed an antibiotic that maybe you are allergic to when he didn't realize that either. Let us know, because we'll be more than happy to call them, inform them, and possibly get the prescription changed to something else.
