What R U treating?: Oscillococcinum is a homeopathic preparation claimed to be made from the (non-existent) "oscillococcus" bacterium, which is marketed to relieve influenza-like symptoms. It is actually derived from duck liver &heart, diluted to 200C—a ratio of one part duck offal to 10400 parts water. Alka-Seltzer is a combo of sodium bicarbonate, aspirin, citric acid. Probably okay together, but what's your goal?

Ok except: Alka seltzer contains aspirin, so it should be avoided by those people with Aspirin allergy. Otherwise, alka seltzer at usual doses is well tolerated by those who have environmental allergies.
