    Hello Pam

    i don’t think you should double up on antibiotics but possibly a quick call to your doctor would clear it up

    Best wishes

    I've been told to stop taking the Azi while on another AB, which makes sense to me, but I do know some Consultants say differently .  But then I am on a string AB as my rescue AB than amoxicillin

    Before making your own decision on stopping Az why can't you simply ask your doctor?
