    Yes they can, you are advised to take extra precautions whilst taking the antibiotics. I'm surprised this wasn't mentioned when you was given the antibiotics.

    it depends on the antibiotic, some interfere and some don't. you could either phone up the pharmacy where you got them from or the doctor or just take precautions anyway.

    You should use condems til you start you first packet after you finish your course, or even for a month after you finish taking them if you can. The advise they give you isnt normally for long enough.

    When I was on antibiotics they told me that I would need to use protection whilst I was taking them and then 7 days after I had stopped taking them.

    7 days is what my gf was told. Depends what the antibiotics are. Website: www.bnf.org.uk will give you side effect and precautions for any drugs (you have to register but it's free and anyone can do it)
