A member asked:

My cough variant asthma always flares up when i come down with a cold. so, is it safe for me to combine otc cold meds with albuterol and pulmicort?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Use as directed: I assume you normally use pulmocort as a maintenance med and albbuterol as rescue--when you have a cold/flare up, use of albuterol may need to be increased for a short time. Otc cold meds can be used as directed in combo with your medications, but if symptoms not better or worsen after 3-5 days, i suggest consulting doc for eval/additional treatment etc... Good luck.
