A 32-year-old female asked:

Is it ok to take sudafed and sudafed pe together? staggering the doses wouldn't feel as awful in the last bit of time before another 12-hour pill.

NO: I would not mix these two forms of the same medicine since you cannot rely on the extended form being absorbed correctly and OVERDOSE of Sudafed is VERY dangerous (heart...blood pressure) My opinion only! Hope this helps! Dr Z
