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?

NO!!!: Alka-Seltzer Plus contains 325 mg of ASPIRIN per tab.
Do Not take this together with ibuprofen. Taking it together
could well cause serious gastrointestinal bleeding from your stomach, or bleeding elsewhere!!!
