antibiotics and cycle
Can you take antibiotics such as tetracyclin and Amoxicilin while on a cycle that consists of Test E, Eq, Tren ?

I did some looking around on that . . . checked the manufacturer's slips that comes with the medication (similar info to what's in the Physician's Desk Reference, I think) and I didn't see any interactions between Tetracyclin and AS. If you're fighting a low-grade simple infection, I personally wouldn't worry about it, BUT then again, I'm not a doctor.
From looking at the two (below) Medline excerpts on Tetracycline and Test Cypionate , it doesn't look like there's any overlap. But before you stick that needle in your butt and push that plunger, get enough info to assure your remotest doubts . . .
What special precautions should I follow?
Before taking tetracycline,
tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to tetracycline, minocycline, doxycycline, or any other drugs.
tell your doctor and pharmacist what prescription and nonprescription medications you are taking, especially antacids, anticoagulants ('blood thinners') such as warfarin (Coumadin), penicillin, and vitamins. Tetracycline may decrease the effectiveness of some oral contraceptives; another method of birth control should be used while taking this drug.
be aware that antacids, calcium supplements, iron products, and laxatives containing magnesium interfere with tetracycline, making it less effective. Take tetracycline 1 hour before or 2 hours after antacids (including sodium bicarbonate), calcium supplements, and laxatives containing magnesium. Take tetracycline 2 hours before or 3 hours after iron preparations and vitamin products that contain iron.
tell your doctor if you have or have ever had diabetes or kidney or liver disease.
tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding. If you become pregnant while taking tetracycline, call your doctor immediately. Tetracycline can harm the fetus.
plan to avoid unnecessary or prolonged exposure to sunlight and to wear protective clothing, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Tetracycline may make your skin sensitive to sunlight.
From Medline on Test Cypionate:
Other medicines—Although certain medicines should not be used together at all, in other cases two different medicines may be used together even if an interaction might occur. In these cases, your doctor may want to change the dose, or other precautions may be necessary. When you are taking androgens, it is especially important that your health care professional know if you are taking any of the following:
Acetaminophen (e.g., Tylenol) (with long-term, high-dose use) or
Amiodarone (e.g., Cordarone) or
Anabolic steroids (nandrolone [e.g., Anabolin], oxandrolone [e.g., Anavar ], oxymetholone [e.g., Anadrol ], stanozolol [e.g., Winstrol ]) or
Anti-infectives by mouth or by injection (medicines for infection) or
Antithyroid agents (medicines for overactive thyroid) or
Carbamazepine (e.g., Tegretol) or
Carmustine (e.g., BiCNU) or
Chloroquine (e.g., Aralen) or
Dantrolene (e.g., Dantrium) or
Daunorubicin (e.g., Cerubidine) or
Disulfiram (e.g., Antabuse) or
Divalproex (e.g., Depakote) or
Estrogens (female hormones) or
Etretinate (e.g., Tegison) or
Gold salts (medicines for arthritis) or
Hydroxychloroquine (e.g., Plaquenil) or
Mercaptopurine (e.g., Purinethol) or
Methotrexate (e.g., Mexate) or
Methyldopa (e.g., Aldomet) or
Naltrexone (e.g., Trexan) (with long-term, high-dose use) or
Oral contraceptives (birth control pills) containing estrogen or
Phenothiazines (acetophenazine [e.g., Tindal], chlorpromazine [e.g., Thorazine], fluphenazine [e.g., Prolixin], mesoridazine [e.g., Serentil], perphenazine [e.g., Trilafon], prochlorperazine [e.g., Compazine], promazine [e.g., Sparine], promethazine [e.g., Phenergan], thioridazine [e.g., Mellaril], trifluoperazine [e.g., Stelazine], triflupromazine [e.g., Vesprin], trimeprazine [e.g., Temaril]) or
Phenytoin (e.g., Dilantin) or
Plicamycin (e.g., Mithracin) or
Valproic acid (e.g., Depakene)—Use of these medicines with androgens may increase the chance of liver problems. Your doctor may want you to have extra blood tests that check your liver while you are taking any of these medicines with an androgen
Anticoagulants (blood thinners)—Androgens can increase the effect of these medicines and possibly cause excessive bleeding
