Sun Expossure while taking it okay?

I am on Amoxicillin 500mg 3xs a day...going to Hawaii for 10 days..should I avoid the sun? I was told to stay out of sun while on Doxy...but can not find anything when I do a google search for Amoxicillin. Thanks.

I don't believe Amoxicillin is going to cause you issues when you're out in the sun- I was on it in the summer months, and didn't have any problems. I would of course wear sun screen, but drugs like Doxycyline (and others in that class) are more of an issue.
