Can you take Augmentin 375mg if you are on efexor xl 75mg? I have had a virus for serveral weeks and now my sinus is extremely painful and I think I have a chest infection, I have green phelm and it tastes bad with a chesty cough. I also have a dental absess but cannot get an appointment with a dentist for 2 weeks. I am 39, female, suffer with general anxiety disorder, have had no previous surgery or serious illnesses, I also take tamezepam 10mg to sleep and ozaxepam 10mg three times per day.
