Ask pharmacist or Dr: The risks are not terrible as long as you stay pretty much at rest. Becoming drowsy or dizzy and having judgement impaired are the common effects and make it dangerous to drive or do tasks that require clarity. But do call to ask and get good info on what to do if you feel bad. I hope you feel better real soon.
