Can you use the tanning bed while taking amoxicillin?

    Some antibiotics increase your sensitivity to the light. To find out if yours is one of them call your pharmacist and ask him. Also remember that tanning greatly increases your risk of skin cancer and skin cancer doesn't care if you are 15 or 75 years old. It can strike anyone and is deadly if not caught in time. Why not consider a spray tan at a salon instead. It's much much safer. Tanning salons should have a list they provide that lets you be aware of what medications you should not tan while taking. Take it seriously. Besides, if you are already tan, missing some time is not only OK but safe too. Wait until you have completed the medication. Consult your tanning salon and ask for a list of medications.
